Ghisolana Prosecco Over 100, NV, Asolo DOCG, Veneto, Italy
£19.75 (inc VAT)
One of the most aristocratic Proseccos around. This is not just fruit frivolous fizz.
Prosecco is just fruity frivolous fizz, isn't it? Well yes and no. This fun Prosecco is a sure-fire party starter packed with fruity flavour. But it also has a serious side and is anything but mass-produced. Grapes are handpicked in the heart of the exceptional Asolo Superiore region from a tiny 3 hectare plot of organic 100 year old vines, these are then fermented without adding sulphur.
"Ghisola" a word meaning "purity"in old Italian + Asolano, the growing district = Ghisolana: a small family-run winery that's been in business since 1929 in the heart of the Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG zone. Second generation vineyard manager Ernesto farms 3 hectares of over 100 year old vines organically.
