Prosecco as a Piccini wine makes perfect sense for the Piccini brand : it’s an extremely friendly wine, meant to be enjoyed fresh, more fruit and vivid, than complex and austere, more playful and lively than toasty and yeasty. The Piccini family bears a special love for the wine, because Prosecco is in Treviso exactly what Chianti is in Tuscany : a life style and a cultural legacy marked by centuries of tradition tracing back to antiquity.
Produced from Glera grapes of the vineyards located in the province of Treviso. First fermentation occurs in steel vats at controlled temperature , with selected yeasts. The Charmat method for producing effervescence from a second fermentation performed in pressurized tanks is meant top reserve fruit and freshness. This specific method is geared toward retaining primary fruit character makes Prosecco a straight forward expression of terroir. From this point of view Prosecco DOC is a “grown” wine , showing the particular properties of its place of origin.
Intense fruity with rich scent of apple, lemon and grapefruit. A pronounced aroma of wisteria in bloom and acacia flowers. The floral aromas clash with a pleasantly bitter citrus rind note that is inherent in Prosecco grape (Glera). Vivid and fresh, with a fine, persistent perlage. Prosecco is a fantastic wine food.
