The Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG is a white wine that has become very popular both in Italy and abroad, thanks to its drinkability and pleasantness of the bubbles combined with floral and fruity character. The production area is entirely in the province of Treviso, and more precisely in the hills between Vittorio Veneto, Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. It is vinified from grapes Glera, a semi-aromatic variety, with the addition of other local grapes like Bianchetta, Perera and Verdiso. In many cases, also about the Conegliano Valdobbiadene, we can recognize a "heroic viticulture": the steep hills often do not allow mechanization and almost all workings are made by hand. The most famous and popular version is the Prosecco sparkling wine, produced from base wines and sparkled in stainless steel tanks using the Martinotti-Charmat method, that allows to better express the typical floral and fruity notes. Prosecco is also produced in the still version. Important is the zoning of the vineyards that many manufacturers are also highlighting in the label with the words "Rive". It indicates a particular vineyard that, thanks to its exposure and substrate, gives very high quality wines. The Conegliano Valdobbiadene is sold indicating the residual sugar in it. Beside the traditional "Extra-dry", the versions “Dry” and the modern and international “Brut” are now popular. Wine Tasting Notes The sparkling wine Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore appears pale yellow with a fine and persistent perlage. The nose is intense with strong floral and fruity aromatic notes. The palate is pleasant, dry or slightly sweet (depending on the version), with a long finish.
