2021 Nani Rizzi Prosecco Superiore Millesimato Dry DOCG
This delicious Prosecco Superiore Cru Millesimato Dry DOCG is made from 85% Glera, 10% Bianchetta (also known as Arneis) and 5% Perera grapes. The Italian winery Nani Rizzi makes this Prosecco by combining traditional methods with new innovative techniques. The beautiful vineyards in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene region are located at an altitude of 250-300 meters. The vinification of the grapes, after they have been harvested exclusively and very carefully by hand, is carried out with a light cold maceration in order to obtain a high-quality product. Nani Rizzi selects the best grapes of the year for this Prosecco.
The Prosecco Superiore Cru Millesimato Brut, with its beautiful pale straw-yellow color, has an intense and refined taste with beautiful fruity notes of ripe apple and yellow-fleshed peach with a lovely light floral aroma of acacia flowers and rose petals. All this makes this Prosecco extremely suitable as an aperitif and also delicious with fish starters. This prosecco has a beautiful perlage with refined bubbles and is nice and minerally dry with only 8 gr residual sugar. In addition to the great content, the appearance of this Prosecco Superiore Cru Millesimato Brut is also a showpiece in itself.
Winery Nani Rizzi
Nani Rizzi is a famous and authentic winery located in the Conegliano Valdobbiadene region and is internationally known for its excellent Prosecco wines which are made with great passion. Nanio Rizzi is one of the few wineries that can carry the Prosecco Superiore predicate. You have Prosecco and Prosecco Superiore and that makes a world of difference. In order to be allowed to feed Prosecco Superiore DOCG, strict rules must be met:
- The grapes must come from the Conegliano Valdobbiadene region and this is also where the vinification must take place. The following municipalities fall within this region: Conegliano, San Vendemiano, Colle Umberto, Vittorio Veneto, Tarzo, Cison di Valmarino, San Pietro di Feletto, Refrontolo, Susegana, Pieve di Soligo, Farra di Soligo, Follina, Miane, Vidor and Valdobbiadene.
- The minimum amount of Glera (the official name of the prosecco grape) in the wine must be at least 85%.
- The maximum yield per hectare is 135 hectoliters per hectare. This is substantially higher with the regular Proseccos.
- The maximum amount of juice relative to the picked fruit is 70%. So a maximum of 70 liters of juice can be pressed from 100 kilos of grapes.
- Bottling must take place in the province of Treviso.
Only bottles produced according to the mentioned rules are allowed to bear this label on the bottle, which is usually stuck to the back of the capsule. Also on the label is often called 'DOCG' or written out in full: Denominazione de Origine Controllata et Garantita. Also, the term 'Prosecco Superiore' and 'Valdobbiadene' and 'Conegliano' may only be used with DOCG proseccos. Enough way to see if the prosecco in front of you meets the strict DOCG requirements!
