A Taste of the World’s Best Prosecco with Masottina Winery (VIDEO)
Masottina Makes Prosecco Superiore Magic
Sparkling wine season is officially upon us. And, in case you haven’t heard Prosecco is pretty much the most popular sparkling wine on the planet! It was in 1969 that the first Denomination devoted to Prosecco was born and today Prosecco is Italy’s biggest selling wine around the world.
What makes the Italian bubbly so seductive to wine lovers around the globe? Well, it’s fresh, it’s fun and it’s full of life, just like our friends in Italy. Available in just about every price point, you don’t need a special occasion to pop the top on a bottle of Processo. In fact, just opening a bottle of Prosecco is all you need to get the party started!
In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani travels to the front lines of the grapes vines and visits Conegliano Veneto, home to Prosecco Superiore. Conegliano is a breathtaking place to visit. A region where culture, cuisine, and the world’s finest Prosecco take center stage.
Monique gets to the bottom of the best bubbly with Masottina Winery‘s Federico Dal Bianco. Monique gets a glimpse into the 2016 Glera grape harvest at Masottina Winery, in the historical Conegliano Valdobbiadene Denomination Area. Monique learns how gravity is Masottina Winery’s secret weapon to helping make the best grape selection. Plus, Brut, Dry, Extra Dry? What makes your Prosecco pop? Dal Bianco shows us the devil is in the details!
The production area for D.O.C. Prosecco lies in one of the most beautiful parts of Italy, a region including 9 Provinces in the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. D.O.C. Prosecco is the iconic wine for informal yet refined drinking, and is unmistakably identified with the Italian way of life. With its wines under the Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso label, Masottina finds its way onto markets and into the glasses of its fans throughout most of Europe and in the principal importing countries for wines of quality. The Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso of the Dal Bianco family are recognizable for their subtle taste, their elegance and their moderate alcohol content: qualities that allow them to be one of the most popular brands on international markets.
Federico Dal Bianco, Masottina Winery
“This year we are looking forward to good quality wines rich in aromas that express the organoleptic features of our territory, intense and with good acidity.
With regard to our important red wines, it’s too early to make predictions, but given the weather of the last few days we are confident we will be able to vinify healthy, perfectly ripened grapes which will produce intense wine that will last well.”
