Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry (NV)

Cavicchioli 1928

Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry is made from 100% Glera grapes. In the province of Treviso, the vines are grown mostly on a flat fertile terrain of medium texture.

In the winery, under-ripe” grapes (in order to preserve well the acidity), hand picked, are vinified in white with the skins at a temperature of 8-10°C (cryomaceration) for about 12 hours; the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature of 16-18°C is followed by the second fermentation using the Charmat method at a temperature of 12-14 °C for about 15-24 days.

Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco DOC Spumante Extra Dry features, when poured and tasted, white foam; lively, fine and persistent perlage; pale straw yellow color; an intense aroma of candied fruits and sweet flowers; and a fresh and delicate taste with an aromatic finish; its alcohol is 11%.

    "The Glera grapes in this sparkling wine are just as its name suggests: Extra dry. It's refined acidity is rounded out with aromas of candied fruits, like apricot and mango, rolled in sweet flowers. The finish, meanwhile, is fresh and lingering. The dry texture of this particular prosecco makes it a good one to use in a mimosa."

    "To lighten things up, have it with a glass of bubbly, such as Cavicchiolis 1928 Extra Dry Prosecco from Italy, which has a suggested price of $14. The 1928 refers to the year the Cavicchioli family started to bottle the wine under its own name. This refreshing sparkler has just a touch of sweetness (extra dry in the sometimes odd parlance of wine) with apple, lemon and herb notes that will easily invite you to pour yourself another glass. Consider it as an aperitif before dinner as well."
