Tasting Notes

Col Fondo Prosecco is reminiscent of a hefeweizen with a yeasty delicious aromas. The wine started fermentation in steel tanks and was then bottled and the wine finished fermenting in bottle. The resulting wine is cloudy yet the palate is gorgeous, dry and with a fine bead that is refreshing any time of year. Made from 30 year old Glera grapes and harvested within the Asolo area of the region. The Pozzobon family of Case Paolin has tasked themselves with bringing the Asolo Prosecco DOCG to the forefront of quality and purity within the region.

Staff Pick Notes

Sunny. Fresh. Delicious. Expand your definition of Prosecco with this well made wine this is just a touch natural. It's made from old vine Glera within the Asolo DOCG, and it is completely different from the mass-marketed wines that this category has become associated with. "Col Fondo" means an older, more labor intensive style of production that undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, and is a lot more nuanced and delicate. Something like Prosecco x Champagne method x Pet Nat profile. This bottle from Case Paolin is a dusty goldenrod color with notes of yellow apple, asian pear and wheat grain. A delightful aperitivo.

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.
