Zonin Prosecco Grey

Prosecco (pronounce Proh-sehk-koh) takes its name from a quaint hillside town near Trieste, in Friuli Venezia Giulia. VINTAGE NV APPELLATION Veneto DOC AREA Northeast Italy GRAPES Glera and Pinot Grigio VINIFICATION The must is obtained by very soft pressing of the grapes, then 50% undergoes an initial fermentation at a controlled temperature of 18° C. (64° F.) while the remaining 50% is stored at 0° C. (32° F.) as unfermented must. Lately they are assembled and transferred into pressurized stainless steel tanks where the wine is made sparkling using the traditional Charmat method. COLOR Bright straw-yellow; a fine, clear mousse with a very delicate perlage. BOUQUET Attractively intense; very fruity and aromatic, with hints of calendula, broom and ginger. PALATE Very well-balanced, lively and eclectic with light notes of orange and mandarin and a very appealing spiciness that lingers on the finish. FOOD PAIRINGS An excellent aperitif, it can also be served throughout the meal - including dessert - as long as with sol and salmon roll, scallops on a cream of peas, aubergine and rucolino rocket fritters. SERVING TEMPERATURE 41°F - 45°F ALCOHOL LEVEL 11% BOTTLE SIZE 750 mL
