After History, Territory, Disciplinary and Methods of Sparkling Wine, we fix the main concepts of the Prosecco world.
Let’s now deal with the method of vinification of this wine: we will start with a general overview about the world of sparkling wines and then we will distinguish the two methods of sparkling process.
Here we are at our third stop to discover the world of Prosecco. A little analytic stage, we want, in fact, to tell you about the guidelines, documents that protect the Denominations of musts and wines. We will deal with three Prosecco Guidelines. We wanted to make everything easier by schematizing the main notions in several points.
Last time we mentioned the small town of Prosecco and now we want to start from there. Prosecco is 9km far from Trieste and the vine cultivated here spread initially in the neighboring territories to then reach the areas still suitable for the cultivation of grapes that give rise to Prosecco wine. This grape is called GLERA.
We know that sometimes history may be boring, but it is useful to understand better our past and origins, exactly the world of Prosecco.
Conegliano Valdobbiadene is an area situated in the province of Treviso between Venice and the Dolomites. This area includes fifteen minicipalities: Conegliano, San Vendemiano, Colle Umberto, Vittorio Veneto, Tarzo, Cison di Valmarino, San Pietro di Feletto, Refrontolo, Susegana, Pieve di Soligo, Farra di Soligo, Follina, Miane, Vidor, Valdobbiadene and it is where Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG is produced.
Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG is obtained from the eighty-five per cent of Glera grapes and the remaining fifteen per cent of native varieties like Verdisio, Bianchetta, Perera, Glera Lunga cultivated in the hilly area of the 19 municipalities of the Montello and Colli Asolani districts
Prosecco is produced in the North-east of Italy precisely in five provinces in Veneto (Treviso, Venezia, Vicenza, Padova, Belluno) and in four provinces in Friuli Venezia Giulia (Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine).
