Style A delicate vibrant Prosecco

A delicate vibrant Prosecco with an elegant mousse. The pale yellow colour reflects the vibrant exuberance of the wine with delicate bubbles and a delicate vinous nose. The intense and persistent mousse and the elegant aromas of the bouquet make this a delightful aperitif or great for light appetisers.

A youthful and fresh Prosecco but at the same time, elegant and complex. Bright and clean, the nose has a floral and fruit bouquet, aromas of white flowers, also hints of rennet apples and pineapple, and a fragrant hint of bread crust and yeast. These flavours are carried through to the fruity palate, which also has good, clean acidity and that added minerality.

Country Of Origin: Italy

A superior Prosecco fom the specific Denominazione di Origine Controlla region in the Veneto region to the west of Venice. Due to the explosion of popularity in Prosecco, there is a plethora of cheap Prosecco on the market, much of it from inferior I.G.T. classified regions. It is far better to pay that little bit extra and get a far superior wine such as this.

Produced solely from the Glera (Prosecco) grape grown in the Veneto area where the clay subsoil has a presence of calcareous concretions, it is the typicity of these vineyards which gives the final wine its minerality, so lacking in cheaper Proseccos. The fruit underwent temperature controlled vinification before maturation in pressure tanks. The resultant wine was then bottled under pressure to retain all the bubbles.

A good proportion of Prosecco on the market is non-vintage, a blend of different years, but "Le Clivie" Prosecco is labelled as "Millesimato", the product of a single year.
