Prosecco

Wistfully aromatic notes of acacia and wisteria waft in the Mediterranean breeze, as subtle flavors of honeyed pear and bright lemon are balanced by a crisp minerality for a wine that finishes with lovely length. Serve chilled.

 

Winemaking

The Charmat Method of producing sparkling wines is the most suitable vinification method for crafting Prosecco, giving it the natural sparkling character while emphasizing the fresh, fruity flavors. The wine, with the addition of sugar and selected yeasts, ferments in a stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature, reaching a pressure of 5.2 / 5.00 bar at 68°F. This gives the wine its characteristic fruity flavor and a fine mousse of small, long-lasting bubbles. The result is a light, delicate sparkling Prosecco.
