Once the glera grapes have been harvested, they are transported to the winery where specially designed machinery presses the grapes very gently so that only the free-run juice from the heart of the grape is extracted.
The acidity in Prosecco will cut through any cream sauce or cheese, while the nutty almond flavor pairs excellently salads, fried appetizers, and appetizers of nutty-flavored cheeses, such as Gouda or cheese balls made with nuts.
Color: Pale yellow with small silver flecks. Its medium-fine bubbles are persistent.
Nose: Aromas of golden apples, pear, and honey.
