Name of varietal: Prosecco

Common synonyms: Glera
Parentage of the grape: thought to have been first grown in Friuli, then brought to the Veneto region of Italy where it became most popular. 
History of the grape: References to a lightly sparkling wine in the Veneto date back to the 1100s, but it was much sweeter than the popular styles today. The reason for this is that the grape reaches full ripeness relatively late in the harvest season. The grapes would be crushed and set to ferment. However cold temperatures that couldn’t be controlled meant the wine would be bottled often before complete fermentation, which means residual sugar that didn’t get a chance to be converted to alcohol is still in the wine. Come spring, carbon dioxide gets trapped in the bottle, and the wine gets fizzy. The Carpene Malvoti winery under the direction of Antonio Carpene is credited with changing that method in 1868.

  • Can anyone recommend some very dry white wines (available in the UK)? I have found I don't even like medium or semisweet white wine - they're okay and drinkable but I would like to find something I really like. I have come across some in restaurants but they either don't list the brand/vineyard or I forget what it was. And of course it's not li... Read More
