Prosecco Valdobbiadene, Italian for Bubbly
Prosecco Valdobbiadene is the ultimate culmination of achievement in the world of Prosecco, and a source of pride for Italian wine makers. Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG is recognised at the international level as the undisputed protagonist of the aperitivo, an ambassador of the Made in Italy label that affirms a distinct style of drinking.
The Valdobbiadene variety is born of a long tradition that evolved over the course of centuries, due to deep knowledge of technique, and a passion for a refined culture of alcohol. A fundamental role was played by the local Scuola Enologica d’Italia, where the unique Prosecco Valdobbiadene sparkling wine process was perfected by Antonio Carpenè. It is a purely Italian method that defers from its French counterpart.
The base wine is introduced into autoclaves with sugar and yeast allowing the preservation of fruit aromas, giving Italian prosecco fruitier and more floral notes. Prosecco is also re-fermented in these chambers for a month’s time, producing the silky bubbles that are its hallmark. The prosecco is bottled and 30-40 days later it is available on the market.
