...This Ca’ Morlin Prosecco Frizzante is produced from Glera grapes harvested from a 12 hectare plot in Conegliano (within Veneto, North East Italy). Two fermentations in stainless steel tanks were followed by bottling and a youthful release. Intentionally produced in a style that is drier than is the case for much Prosecco, the aim of this unusual decision is to highlight the quality of grapes used to produce it. A pale lemon/green colour in the glass, this non-vintage Ca’ Morlin Prosecco Frizzante offers a subtle bouquet of white flowers, green apples and lime zest that is released as the bubbles of this wine break its surface. A fuller and creamier mousse than is present with some frizzante styles of Prosecco allows this Ca’ Morlin example to appear particularly elegant and well balanced, with the fruit flavours from the nose floating amongst the creamy froth that coats the palate. Notably drier than much Prosecco, there is a risk that this stylistic choice will divide opinion, but this is a persistent and very accomplished wine overall.

Vinification Notes

The fruit was picked relatively late and cool-fermented in order to preserve the delicate aromatics of the grape. Both the first and second fermentation take place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Following the second fermentation, the wine is bottled under pressure so that it remains `frizzante`, or lightly sparkling. Due to the quality of the fruit, the wine has a lower level of residual sugar than is usual with Prosecco, so it is drier and more drinkable as a result. Perfect as an aperitif, it is best served at a temperature of 6-8°C
