Bottega Gold Prosecco Spumante Bruttext

Bottega Gold Prosecco Spumante Brut NV

Treviso, Verona, Veneto, ItalyEven though the distinctively blinged out and trademarked mirror packaging for Bottega Gold doesn't carry DOCG on the label, it is entirely DOCG quality fruit. A quirk in the appellation laws (Italy!) dictate that the bottle has to be made of clear glass in a limited range of shades. This glera comes from the hills of Treviso, and is fermented long and cool, partially native, before some time on lees prior to heading to the Charmat tanks for secondary ferment. It was dosed as brut, with 10-12 g/L. Potent and forward with yellow apple, perfumed white peach, pear blossoms, and white melon across a lightly frizzante palate. Lovely balance here in this friendly wine, with all the parts (acid, sugar, fruit) in harmony for drinking now.Tasted: 03 May 2021Tasted by: Prices:
