It’s the holidays, and that means it’s time to break out the bubbly! But if you’re looking
for something special this year, you should consider Conegliano Valdobbiadene
Prosecco Superiore DOCG.
Most of the wine-loving public across the world do not realize that Prosecco is not a
generic name that means “Italian sparkling wine” or that it is not the name of a grape,
like Merlot or Chardonnay, actually it was, however since 2009 the Prosecco grape has
been renamed as Glera. And if people do know what Prosecco is, are not aware
that not all Prosecco is the same.
It’s important to note that there is a difference between “Prosecco” and “Prosecco
Superiore”. Prosecco is a generic broader term to indicate for sparkling wine produced
with the designation DOC, while Prosecco Superiore is a specific type of Prosecco that
has been aged for a minimum of nine months and produced in the Conegliano and
Valdobbiadene hillsides, a tiny area of 30×25 km wide where this sparkling was born.
This distinction is important to note when selecting a Prosecco for the holidays.
