Prosecco

This sparkling wine is on everyone's lips and for this very reason it is good to take a closer look at the region where Prosecco DOC and Prosecco Superiore DOCG, may be produced.

 

Briefly on the geographical classification: the region in which Prosecco DOC may be produced is located in a total of nine provinces between Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. The heart lies north of Treviso, more precisely, between the towns of Valdobbiadene, Asolo and Conegliano. Only here may be produced the high quality Prosecco Superiore DOCG, which since 2009 are also officially so named. The royal class, in the heart of the production area. But it goes a little more exclusive.

 

 

Valdobiaddene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG

The steep hills and mountainsides in the production area of Conegliano Valdobiaddene Prosecco DOCG, is called precisely Valdobiaddene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG. We are talking about a total of 107 hectares. This is the top of the Prosecco production pyramid. The sub-zone in the municipality of Valdobiaddene (San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccol) was already included in the regulations of the designation of origin in 1969 and the yield in these areas is limited to 12 tons per hectare.

 

Conegliano Valdobiaddene Prosecco Superiore Rive DOCG

Rive, which here means steep slope, and there are 43 of them in total, each of which is unique in terms of soil characteristics, exposure and microclimate. Here the yield of the vines is limited to 13 tons per hectare and the grapes are harvested exclusively by hand. These are vintage wines, which are marked on the label with the word "Millesimo".

 

Conegliano Valdobiaddene Prosecco Superiore DOCG

The DOCG Spumante with this designation comes exclusively from the hills around the two municipalities of Conegliano and Valdobiaddene. Only the Glera grape is used here, and the yield limit is set at 13.5 tons. Each winery produces its own cuvées from the microzones and according to the philosophy of the house, in the versions Extra Brut, Brut, Extra Dry and Dry, which differ from each other in the content of residual sugar. Attention: the designation "Dry" does not mean "dry". It stands for the sweetest type.

 

Asolo Prosecco DOCG

The vines come from the region around Asolo, from the hills at the foot of the Dolomites. In order to display the designation of origin, they must not only grow here, but also be vinified and bottled here. Glera is the main grape variety used (85%), but Verdiso, Bianchetta Trevigiana, Perera and Glera Lunga are also permitted.

 

Prosecco DOC Treviso

Again, the grape harvest, vinification and bottling of the wines must take place entirely in the provinces of Treviso or Trieste. Both have a special importance in the history of Prosecco and for this reason may be designated.

 

 

Prosecco DOC

The geographical area of Prosecco DOC is located in a total of five provinces of Veneto and four of Friuli Venezia Giulia. The grape variety used is predominantly Glera, which was already cultivated by the Romans. Up to 15 percent of other defined grape varieties may also be used. Prosecco is the most consumed sparkling wine in the world; in 2021, the consortium recorded a production volume of 627 million bottles. Since 2021, the rosé variant of Prosecco has also been permitted, for which a higher proportion of blue grape varieties (often Pinot Noir) may be used.
