VARIETAL + REGIONS:
parkling wine consumption in the US continues to grow rapidly. At the head of that growth curve is Prosecco, a sparkling white wine from northeastern Italy (specifically the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia wine regions). Prosecco is also the informal name for the grape variety used to make these wines, which is now known as Glera.
ABOUT THE WINE:
Lot 50 is made from grapes harvested in the southeastern Veneto from cordon-trained vines planted in alluvial soils. After a soft press, the must is cooled and then fermented in stainless steel. Secondary fermentation occurs using the Charmat method.
Aromas of fresh peaches leap from the glass along with hints of ginger and lilac. Once sipped, a shower of foamy bubbles dance soulfully on the tongue and then burst into a medley of crisp citrus fruit.
