Celebrating 130 years since it started to make wines in 1882 in Castellina in Chianti, Piccini launched its first non-Tuscan wine in 2012. Prosecco makes perfect sense for the Piccini brand: it’s an extremely friendly wine, meant to be enjoyed fresh, more fruit and vivid, than complex and austere, more playful and lively than toasty and yeasty. The Piccini family bears a special love for the wine, because Prosecco is in Treviso exactly what Chianti is in
Tuscany : a lifestyle and a cultural legacy marked by centuries of tradition tracing back to antiquity. Prosecco and Chianti are wines of Italian attitude, an invitation to try out the Italian way of enjoying food in company of friends and family, relax and enjoy la dolce vita!
Varietal: 100% Glera
Appellation: DOC Tre Venezie
Soil: Morainic origin , province of Treviso DOC.
Winemaking: Produced from glera grapes of the vineyards located in the province of Treviso. First fermentation occurs in steel vats at controlled temperature , with selected yeasts. The Charmat method for producing effervescence from a second fermentation performed in pressurized tanks is meant to preserve fruit and freshness. This specific method is geared toward retaining primary fruit character makes Prosecco a straightforward expression of terroir. From this point of view Prosecco DOC is a “grown” wine , showing the particular properties of its place of origin.
Tasting Notes: Intense fruity with rich scent of apple, lemon and grapefruit. A pronounced aroma of wisteria in bloom and acacia flowers. The floral aromas clash with a pleasantly bitter citrus rind note that is inherent in Prosecco grape (glera). Vivid and fresh, with a fine, persistent perlage. Food Pairing: It pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine: antipasti or white meat. It is great with sea food.
