The best wines of Veneto: prosecco

 

Prosecco is produced with Glera grape, which has particular white berried grapes, it can be used pure and exclusive or with 15% of Pinot, Chardonnay, Verdiso, Bianchetto grapes. Grapes are harvested and then lightly pressed in steel tanks until the must is extracted. Enzymes and selected yeasts are added to the must. Subsequently they are fermented at a temperature of about 18 degrees.

 

At this point, we proceed with the sparkling process in order to understand the type of prosecco we want to obtain. It is done with the Martinotti method, that is, the wine is placed in autoclaves with cane sugar and yeasts and fermented. This phase lasts 50 days and then fermentation takes place.

 

Proseccos can be classified in

 

  • Brut: on the palate it is drier and with less concentrated sugar, it is also perceivable by the smell which tends to acidity, excellent for foods.
  • Extra Brut: it is also less sweet and dry than dry ones because there is less sugar
  • Dry: the sweetest of all, the favorite for aperitifs and as dessert wine, with residual sugar between 17 and 32 grams per liter.
  • Extra Dry: it is sweet and smooth to the palate, the favorite for aperitifs and as dessert wine. Sugar here is equal to 12 and 17 grams per liter.

 

Here are the best ones:

 

1.              Mionetto Prosecco Avantgarde Collection Brut Treviso DOC: an elegant and dry sparkling wine, with an aroma of flowers and sweet fruits such as peaches and apricots, the taste is dry but it is smooth and with a little bitter finish. Brut wines usually go very well with food, this one in particular, is excellent to drink with raw vegetables, with fine mushrooms and with grilled fish and white meat. Excellent to be drunk chilled, without ice.

On the palate it is fresh and quite soft although not very sweet. It goes very well with raw or grilled fish dishes, with full bodied vegetable dishes.

3.              Prosecco Bortolin: this sparkling wine comes from the homonymous winery, an excellence in the Veneto region. It is made of Glera grape, subsequently pressed with very sophisticated techniques and, above all, it is allowed to rest in steel tanks in order to then proceed to the sparkling process. It is available in brut, dry and milesimato versions. It can be drunk with meat and with raw fish and crustaceans.

4.              Prosecco Marsuret: light straw yellow color, fruity and floral bouquet. It is produced in the 15 municipalities to which the hills between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene belong.
