Valdo Prosecco Brut Bubbles to the Top

I was recently introduced to a notable sparkleing wine brought to my attention by Mariam "Raz" Razavi of Wines by Raz called Valdo Prosecco Brut. It is a top notch Italian Prosecco made a la Methode Champenoise created right in the heart of the Prosecco D.O.C. production area, the Valdo Winery has been cultivating this unique grapevine for generations. With this Methode Champenoise the effervescence for more complex wines is produced by secondary fermentation in the bottle. As the name suggests, this is used for the production of Champagne and other quality sparkling wines, but is slightly more expensive than the more typical Charmat process. Charmant is a process in which wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in bulk tanks, and is bottled under pressure producing bigger bubbles.

 

Straw yellow color, joined with a fine perlage and a fruity taste are the distinguishing features of Valdo’s Brut Prosecco DOC. Its well-balanced structure, matched with its flavorful and aromatic fruity fragrance make it the perfect pairing with starters and particulary with delicately flavoured dishes and especially seafood. Excellent as aperitif due to its distinctive characteristic of being "easy to drink", best served in a flute glass. Versatility and freshness are its strengths.

 

This wine also pairs superbly with such dishes as cheese and beef fondue, assortment of charcuterie and cold cuts and not to mention many sharp and gooey cheeses. I look forward to trying the Valdo Rose! Ciao for now.

 

Grape Varieties: Glera 100%  grown and made in the vineyards off the hills of Valdobbiadene in Alto Adige in Northern Italy.
