Perfumed, soft and round with gentle bubbles and fruity, succulent flavours of pear, honeydew melon, honeysuckle and apple. Just divine!
Great-value fizz for parties, weddings, christenings and the like. If pairing with food (do people do that with Prosecco?!), sponge cakes, biscotti or even popcorn would all be great!
Like all Proseccos, Sior Nani is tank-fermented (Charmat method) and made from mainly Glera (min. 85%), the balance comprising Verdiso, Bianchetta Trevigiana, Perera, Glera Lunga, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.
Prosecco is a wildly-popular bubbly wine from north-eastern Italy - Veneto and Friuli, specifically. Previously, the grape behind the wine was called "Prosecco," and so Prosecco could theoretically be made anywhere in the world; but since 2009 the name 'Prosecco' has been legally protected, and now any bottle bearing it has to come from this strictly-defined part of Italy.
The Prosecco appellation actually includes three styles of wine: still Prosecco (rarely seen outside Italy); lightly sparkling Prosecco (frizzante, as here) and foaming/fully sparkling Prosecco (spumante.) The distinction between the latter two categories (2.5 versus 3 bars of pressure inside the bottles) goes largely unnoticed by most drinkers.
