This crafted Prosecco is sophisticated yet playful, dry yet fruity, bursting with elegantly complex notes of apple, pineapple, honeysuckle and pear. Its pale- straw color is reminiscent of the yellow hues of Treviso’s countryside at harvest time. The palate has lovely balance, an utterly seductive creamy texture and a smooth finish that leave the palate refreshed and wanting more.
DESIDERIO N°1 PROSECCO is made entirely from hand-selected, single vintage Glera grapes from two specific locations in Italy’s Treviso commune – the home of Prosecco – within the Veneto region in northern Italy. The Carboncine commune di Roncade and San Biagio di Callalta unique terroir is widely recognized for the superior quality of Glera vineyards due to the strong presence of caranto, a fine clay silt deposited by rivers and streams flowing down from the nearby Dolomite mountains.
The winemaking process is characterized by very soft pressing to ensure proper balance between acidity and natural sugar. Strictly following the Charmat method, the Prosecco undergoes a secondary fermentation in stainless steel tanks and is bottled under pressure to maintain its sophisticated effervescence. The secondary fermentation assists in creating a delicately persistent “perlage”, a word used to describe the quality and size of the bubbles.
Though perfect as an aperitif, this wine pairs well with battered vegetables, fried food, cheese, cold pasta and serves as an excellent companion for oysters, prawns, fish, truffles and desserts such the famous Italian Panettone.
