Distinctively produced with grapes grown in shallower soils, bringing the roots of the vines into greater contact with the thin layers of ancient limestone rock that characterize these hillsides. This in turn lends the grapes a range of delicate mineral notes and fresh suggestions of fruit.Enter The Terroir
Crafted from grapes lovingly cultivated in the shallow soil of moraines in the heart of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene territory. Here, the roots have easier access to the deeper layers of rock, which lend the grapes a range of delicate mineral notes and fresh suggestions of fruit.
To enjoy the full, rich bouquet of this wine, the ideal glass would be a cross between a flute and a tulip glass, which gives a more generous "chamber" in which to savour the aromas.
Prosecco Superiore is best enjoyed at a temperature between 6°C and 8°C. One way to achieve this is to place the bottle in a bucket filled half way with water and ice. As the wine gently warms in the glass, it "opens up" to reveal its aromatic qualities.
A bottle of Prosecco Superiore is best stored in a cool, dark, dry environment with a steady temperature between 12°C and 15°C. For the first year, it is best to store the bottle vertically, after which it can be kept horizontal to help the flavours to develop.
How many bubbles are there in a glass of prosecco? A million! This is the conclusion of the first scientific study on the question, which was carried out by Gérard Liger-Belair and published in the peer-reviewed publication The Journal of Physical Chemistry B.
Prosecco Superiore should be enjoyed young. It best expresses its qualities between 12 and 24 months after bottling. The fruity, perfumed flavours of the younger wine develop with time, ripening and becoming more evidently vinous.
