Mission Briefing

Codename:

Dolcezza

Today’s Prosecco Spumante Treviso DOC is a fresh, clean, bright and delicious sparkler with delicious flavors and an easy mouthfeel. The wine has an easy crispness to it. That is to say that it is bright and fresh, without being biting or overly dry.

Many Prosecco are slightly sweeter and less fizzy than its cousin, Champagne, however, today’s selection is a fully dry Brut. Also, Prosecco is made differently from Champagne, with its secondary fermentation taking place in pressurized tanks (a method called Charmat) as opposed to a secondary fermentation in the bottle (methode champenoise).

This sparkler is bright, fresh and playful on the nose. Very soft and very smooth, the wine glides across the palate, riding on a creamy carpet of fine bubbles. Vibrant acidity and a subtle minerality transport flavors to the far corners of the palate.

This is an easy-drinking, approachable sparkling wine of great balance. Perfect for the romantic evening that you surely have planned with your sweetheart.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light straw yellow in color with a clear core. Energetic columns of fine bubbles rise to the top of the glass, where a thin, continuous mousse persists for a long time.

Smell:

Bright, fresh and playful on the nose, this wine leads with bright, sweet mixed citrus of lime, lemon and a hint of pink grapefruit. White peach, nectarine and subtle white flowers mingle with almond skin and white minerals.

Taste:

Sweet and very softly tart with lovely fresh lime, lemon and green apple. These are backed by a soft limestone minerality. As the wine warms, even just slightly, additional flavors of almond, orange blossom, acacia and subtle hone appear.

Finish:

Fresh, crisp and clean lingering flavors and a limestone minerality that sustain for a long time. Gradually, a soft dryness spreads from the center of the palate, slowly radiating outward.

Pairing:

The obvious pairing is… with your sweetheart, of course! That, and perhaps a picnic of tiny, romantic, sandwiches of turkey or roast beef with provolone. Don’t forget a few fresh berries to drop into the wine.
