Valdo Prosecco

Valdo winery is located in Valdodobbiadene Italy, Similar to etymology which gives an account of the entire history of a specific word, the Valdobbiadene area is undeniably intertwined with the history of the Valdo winery. The wine estate and its territory complement each other: every wine, every sparkling wine, every bottle contains a subtle aromatic note that evokes the flavor of vineyards growing on the hilly slopes of the Treviso province. A cut of cultivated land of about 40,000 acres flooded with light which shines on the green slopes of this territory sheltered by the Dolomites to the north and subdued by the Adriatic Sea to the south. Located right in the heart of the Prosecco D.O.C. production area, the Valdo Winery has been cultivating this unique grapevine for generations. Prosecco Prosecco, Italy's famed sparkling wine, and the name of the white grape that is used to produce the bubbly itself, hails from the Veneto region, in the northeast of the Italian boot and it's typically a fantastic value wine find - as versatile as it is economical. The dominant Prosecco producing towns are Valdobbiadene and Conegliano - buyer tip: look for these towns on the bottle label. On the palate you can expect Prosecco to deliver ripe assorted apple, pear, some citrus and often a dash of nutty almond flavoring. Prosecco is made using the Charmat method, making these wines a first rate wine to drink young and fresh. In general, Prosecco yields lower alcohol levels than many of its still wine counterparts and is best consumed within 2 years of release. Prosecco has another claim to fame, as Venice's popular Bellini cocktail is traditionally made with Prosecco and peach puree. If you are looking for a food-friendly, guest-friendly, easy-going, value-conscious, festive, sparkling white wine find - you will be hard pressed to do better than Italy's popular Prosecco! Serve well-chilled. The Wine Winemaker’s notes: Straw yellow color joined with a perlage and fruity taste are the distinguishing features of Valdo’s Prosecco DOC. Well-balanced structure, matched with its flavorful and aromatic fruity fragrance make it the perfect pairing with appetizers or starters and particularly with delicately flavored dishes and especially seafood. Excellent as an aperitif due to its distinctive “easy” style. Serve well chilled, versatility and freshness are its strengths. Prosecco continues to grow in popularity and why not it is delicious, fun and affordable. We find that if you spend about $15 you will not be disappointed.
