National Prosecco Day – 13th August
With National Prosecco Day taking place on the 13th August, make sure you have the sparkle to excite and inspire. Our sparkling wines have always been a strong area for us but we have recently rejuvenated our Prosecco offering with some new blood being introduced. Here’s three guaranteed to add some fizz to this year’s National Prosecco Day proceedings.
GEMIN PROSECCO DOC EXTRA DRY (20cl Bottle)
Gemin have become synonymous with the best quality Prosecco – deeply committed on quality and reliability, without compromises. Gemin give their grapes a soft pressing at a controlled temperature and with selected yeasts in an autoclave for at least 30 days with Charmat or Martinotti method. This Extra Dry Prosecco has 16g/l of sugar and offers a bright straw colour with an intense and continuous fine-grained perlage. It is gentle and fresh with a characteristic fresh floral aroma and a harmonious, round taste.
GEMIN VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE EXTRA DRY
Prosecco Valdobbiadene DOCG can only be made in the Treviso province of Veneto on the hills between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Lying halfway between the Dolomites and the Adriatic Sea, the slopes have a unique microclimate – full sun ripens the grapes and high altitude and breeze ensure freshness even in the hottest summers. The steepness of the hills also means that everything—from pruning to picking—is principally done by hand.
Gemin’s vineyards here are farmed in line with organic practices and the grapes are again soft pressed at a controlled temperature. It is Extra Dry with 16g/l of sugar and won a Silver Medal at Mundus Vini 2020.
JUST ARRIVED – CAMPO DEL PASSO
And finally, brand new to our portfolio for August 2020 is the Campo Del Passo – Prosecco DOC Extra Dry. Straw yellow in colour with a fine and persistent perlage, the nose offers plenty of fruit with pineapple, pear and apricot to the fore and on the palate it is intense, fresh and rich. A fantastically versatile drop, it pairs perfectly with starters and light main courses such as risotto and roast vegetables.
