Staff Pick Notes

How can one know which Prosecco to drink when there are so many to choose from? I'd say pick one with some historical cachet for starters. My pick is Carpenè Malvolti & here's why: Antonio Carpenè Sr. was one of three major players in the development of this wine as we know it today & often bears the title "the father of Prosecco" due to his refinement of production methods begun by Federico Martinotti & Eugene Charmant. He also started an oenology school in Conegliano & established industry standards for the category. If you want to make a spritz, Carpenè Malvolti will certainly do the trick, but my favorite way to drink this wine is on its own. The flavors are clean & fresh, offering subtle white flowers & pear notes; the perlage (bubbles) is fine and persistent. Excellent with melon & prosciutto or Parmigiano Reggiano & crusty bread.


Astor's Glossary of Terms


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.
