About This Wine
There have been few positive results of the Great Recession.
One, however, would be the emergence of Prosecco as an affordable and engaging alternative to French Champagne. We will always love French bubbly, but for those of us who can’t afford to drink it everyday, the Italian version — especially when crafted by a quality producer such as Il Cortile Sereno — makes an extremely satisfying alternative.
For the current multiple-vintage (labeled “non-vintage,” or “NV”) bottling, the Il Cortile Sereno vintner tapped selected parcels of Glera grapes grown northeast of Trevis. The vines are 17 years old, and all of the grapes were harvested by hand to eliminate any that did not attain an appropriate level of ripeness.
This is a fresh and fruity Prosecco with a fine and persistent bead, a delightful freshness and frothiness on the palate, and the slightest whisper of creamy lees. In a word: delicious.
