Tasting Notes

Just the kind of Prosecco to whet the appetite before dinner. This is lively and full of aromas of keylime and flowers and on the palate delivers a mineral aspect that balances the fruit. Aromatic and simply delicious.

Staff Pick Notes

Prosecco is surprisingly diverse. In the vineyards surrounding the town of Asolo (called The City of 100 Horizons) you'll find the traditional Glera and Bianchetta grapes, however the clay soil in which they grow and ample exposure to sunlight impart a richness that is unique, and results in a fuller bodied style. Asolo Prosecco is also quite aromatic. Citrus, yellow apple, and white flowers were just a few that I detected in Bedin's "Collina 48." The bubbles are tiny, fizzy and playful. The Extra Dry designation is actually not as dry as Brut, so there is a slight touch of sweetness. An ideal way to start the party as an aperitif or to finish the evening, paired with dessert.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Prosecco

Until recently, "Prosecco" could refer either to a wine or to a white grape. In 2009, however, the grape was renamed "Glera" in a bid to protect Prosecco's good name. Prosecco is usually a sparkling wine made by the Charmat method, though still versions do exist. Because it is so easy to drink, with or without food, Prosecco is a hugely popular choice for parties.
