Conegliano-Valdobiaddene, Veneto, Italy
Col di Rocca Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry is a delightful sparkling wine from this famous appellation in the Veneto of northeast Italy. In 2005, Adriano and Emanuela Gurian took over some fertile land in the undulating landscape of the Prosecco DOCG Conegliano-Valdobiaddene area. Their Riva di Rocca family farm estate, just 11 hectares is size, peeks out from a vibrant valley of leafy green. Complex wine and a dedication to quality and terroir make their boutique winery Veneto's best kept secret. The presence of the Glera grape here dates back to the times of the Roman Empire. It is with grapes sourced only in these vineyards that this Prosecco is made.
Col di Rocca Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry is pale yellow in color with enticing aromas of apple, ripe pear, nectarine, almond, white blossoms, and mineral notes. Crisp and bright with medium body and a creamy foam texture, this bubbly offers bright flavors of pears, nectarines, vanilla, and almonds. It is nicely balanced with a long, satisfying finish.
Enjoy Col di Rocca Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry with shrimp, filet of sole, chicken salad, mild cheeses and light desserts. Toast a special occasion or mix it with peach liqueur for the perfect Bellini!
