Tasted 100% blind: Canella Prosecco Superiore Ranked 2nd out of 100!

More kudos for our pinnacle Prosecco: we had barely finished toasting to the recent Falstaff Sparkling Trophy, when news of a further international accolade reached us: Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World 2007, tasted 100 Proseccos blind and our Valdobbiadene Superiore Extra Dry DOCG was second out of the hundred tasted.

This is what Andreas wrote: “Canella – Prosecco: pale straw colour with young energetic bubbles. Some autolytic notes, pale stone fruit, pear and slight nuttiness on the nose. Medium weight, good grip, balanced dosage, creamy texture, fresh stone fruit notes and rather long finish. A bit more depth and complexity than most other wines this session. 88/100

 

 

Vinitaly is just round the corner!

There’s a lot to look forward to these days: the early overtures of spring after a pretty chilly coda to winter, the joys of colorful Easter egg hunts with your kids and… the year’s major wine fair, Vinitaly, April 7-10.
As always, we’ll be there: you may remember the spot, it’s Pavilion 5, Stand E, as usual!

A Venetian in Vienna: our Prosecco DOCG wins Falstaff Sparkling Trophy

We are delighted to announce that Austria’s Falstaff Magazin has awarded our vintage Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut DOCG 91/100 points in its Falstaff Weinguide 2018/19.

This is a truly momentous seal of approval, coming as it does from the most widely read wine & food publication… in a country well known for its scintillating lifestyle and gourmet tastes.

The review praised the Valdobbiadene’s “silvery hues and subtle perlage. Cool, aloof bouquet and light herbaceous notes. Crisp, fresh and fruity on the palate, precise and bold, with distinctive balance and harmony.”

Care to waltz, anyone?
