A bright and bubbly Italian classic. This sparkling wine boasts aromas of white flowers, and orchard fruits. A splash of minerality and racy acidity on the palate makes this Prosecco a wine great for food or perfect to just sip and enjoy!
Stella d'oro is made from Glera, and ancient grapes with roots tied to the Roman Empire. Historically Prosecco did not bubble, and it was not until the 19th century when secondary fermentation was introduced to winemaking in Italy. Since then, most Prosecco producers use a method called the charmat method, or steel tank fermentation to implement secondary fermentation resulting in the luscious bubbly beverage.
Pairings: Prosciutto wrapped melon, firm cow's milk cheese, shellfish and popcorn.
The Veneto is a united federation of wine. In- dustrious and determined, this powerhouse region offers numerous combinations of microclimates, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. It is recognized for wines on opposite sides of the style spectrum from hearty reds to fragrant sparklers. United, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success.
Prosecco is a lightly fragrant sparkling wine that personifies the easy, carefree spirit of Italy. It communicates that wine is for everyone and this message has been enthusiastically embraced around the world. The same is true of the Veneto’s important white wine (Soave) and rosé (Bardolino) production.
Geography helps explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine tradition. The Dolomites stand tall at the back, blocking cold temperatures from central Europe. This ribbon of land is home to cities Verona, Vicenza, Padova and Treviso, distinguished by their wealth and entrepreneurial spirit. To the east, the mountains slowly succumb to the Adriatic, culminating with the Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice.
