Food Pairings for Bellenda Prosecco Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene
On the hills surrounding Conegliano, about 50 miles north of Venice, lies the beautiful estate of Bellenda. In 1987, Sergio Cosmo started this winery located in the very heart of the prosecco producing region while also completely replacing the vine varieties on land he already owned. The Cosmo family also re-designed the layout of the vineyard, planting 80% of the grapes now used for Prosecco and other sparkling wines with the rest used for still wines. Today, the family business is run by Umberto and Luigi Cosmo, who have a passion for making wine which marries tradition and innovation for the production of truly outstanding wines. The wine is vinified in stainless steel and then by charmat method for two months. Bellenda is clean, fresh and elegant, with delicate, persistent bubbles that enhance its subtle citrussy fruit. “Definitive Prosecco, as chiselled as a piece of pink Verona marble, Bellenda's Brut doesn't make even a nod to Champagne. Its sharp, mineral-laden lemon flavours seem designed with shrimp scampi in mind,” enthused Wine and Spirit magazine.
