Fragrance, freshness and liveliness. These are the adjectives that best describe Prosecco DOC. A wine that has become a status symbol, thanks to both its genuineness and lightness. A wine with a bright straw yellow colour, wonderful aroma and classifiable, according to its sugar content in: Brut, Extra Brut, Extra Dry, Dry. Its characteristics make it the perfect match for aperitifs and special occasions. There are three qualities of Prosecco DOC: tranquillo (no bubbles), frizzante (light and less persistent bubbles), and spumante (fine and persistent bubbles). They are all produced starting from the vinification of the Glera grape; a generous yet delicate grape that prefers a harvest at the right point of ripeness, in order to maintain its organoleptic properties, and constant attention towards the winemaking process to avoid natural fermentation. Both the 'frizzante' and 'spumante' qualities require a second fermentation, which typically takes place through the Charmat-Martinotti method, i.e. re-fermentation in an autoclave. The Prosecco DOC production area extends over almost the entire north-east of Italy, including most of the Venetian provinces, Treviso, Venice, Vicenza, Padua, Belluno, and all the provinces of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, namely Udine, Gorizia, Pordenone and Trieste. You'll find various types of Prosecco DOC to satisfy all palates and different needs in the Valdo catalogue."
