Recommended by the Dutch wine critic and journalist De Grote Hamersma.

Fine, elegant perlage. The nose is intense with apple, pear, lemon and light floral notes of acacia. In the mouth dry with a fresh fruit character. The wine is harmonious and balanced.

Description

Toffoli is a family winery in Refrontolo, a village in the hills north of Treviso.

Refrontolo is in the heart of the production area Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Since July 7, 2019 the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills are UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The terrain of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills is one of Veneto’s areas noted for “heroic viticulture” due to the challenges of growing and harvesting grapes on such steep slopes.

The Glera grapes are harvested around the second half of September. The grapes are always hand picked.

Glera is a native grape variety from the Conegliano Valdobbiadene area. First Prosecco was used as the name for the grape variety.

The Prosecco-Glera name change happened in 2009 when Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco was promoted to DOCG status. The highest level of Italian wine quality.

The Prosecco Brut Superiore sparkling wine is bright, light yellow with green hints. The wine is made from 100% Glera grapes.

Brut is a dryer wine than Extra Dry. If you prefer having your prosecco in a drier style, you want to be looking for Brut.

The light yellow color of the Prosecco Brut Superiore DOCG reminds you of the white wines of Veneto. The bubbles of this prosecco are tiny and last for a long time.

The nose is intense with green apple, pear, lemon and light floral notes of acacia.

In the mouth dry with a fresh fruit character. The wine is harmonious and balanced.

The Prosecco Brut pairs nicely with finger food, oysters, seafood and first courses. It’s also a nice aperitif by itself.

You won’t find this prosecco anywhere other than in this corner of Veneto.
