New Year’s toasts (1): The top Prosecco
For those who cannot go without the sparkling wine Italians love the most, here we have selected the best Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano Valdobbiadene plus an unclassified champion.
The countdown has begun and with five days to go to New Year’s it is natural to ask oneself what sparkling wine they want to celebrate the transition from 2017 to 2018 with. We have decided to offer our suggestions and they are all Italian.
We start today with six Prosecco Superiore, all from the historic area of Conegliano Valdobbiadene that, in our opinion, are unbeatable. We have also added a Charmat method (the same as the others) made from Glera grapes (the same as the others) but which did not meet the requirements to be part of the appellation (but comes from a cru vineyard in the same zone): Grave di Stecca 2013 from Nino Franco, a wine that is a step above the others.
Tomorrow we will present the best Franciacorta and the day after tomorrow the best Trentodoc with the hope that our suggestions will help decide what you want to drink.
Enjoy and Happy New Year.
