I’ve got a sexy new bubbly for you, and this one is a Prosecco from the northern Italian region of Emilia-Romagna.

The land was cultivated in the ’70’s by a group of like-minded hippies with a desire to farm traditionally and create a commune to raise livestock and produce cheese and traditional wines. The land itself has been biodynamic since 1985. (Pssst…in addition to being all-around better for you and the planet, organic and biodynamic wines mean no hangover!) In addition to the forward-thinking agriculture, the commune has also served to help rehabilitate recovering drug addicts. Socially responsible in very different ways.


So much of this wine has a Basque cider quality, and while ciders do serve a great purpose, this wine is much more refined: the beautiful tangerine color, the sweet floral aroma, the crisp apply taste. It’s sweet, but far from cloying or assaulting. Think of it more as a blossomy aroma and not so much sweet in taste. I much prefer dry wines and somehow this manages to be both.

The beading of this wine is special and should be savored. The large surface area of the coupe allowed the bubbles to dissipate too quickly which is why we preferred the flute.

It hits its stride texturally after a few minutes, so take your time and savor. Cheers!

Oh no! Have you tried contacting the distributor? I’m not sure how shipping wine from the US to Canada works, but if I come across any info I will pass it along to you, Ms. Bev E.
