Canella Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano Valdobbiadene

Canella

PROSECCO SUPERIORE DI CONEGLIANO (a.k.a. CONEGLIANO VALDOBBIADENE) DOCG (DOC if bottled before August 1st, 2009): 

Conegliano has been called the cultural hub of the variety, and its historical nucleus.  This dynamic city north of Treviso is also a national winemaking landmark, home to Italy's most ancient winemaking school or Scuola Enologica (founded in 1876!). 

The family-owned hillside vineyards around Conegliano provide all the quality characteristics that have made this particular version of Prosecco so renowned.  100% varietal, from the finest exposures, the Charmat method sparkling wine's youthful freshness, relatively low alcohol content and easy, crisp delicacy are ideal to sip and chat over with one's friends in that convivial, friendly style that is the Canellas' own.

The Canellas suggest tasting this bollicine in the unique Riedel crystal glass that was especially orchestrated by the family with the famous Austrian glassmakers to enhance the wine's aromas and fragrance.

Best served at 8-10 C (46.4-50 F); a delectable aperitif, the classic Prosecco versatility also makes it a fine accompaniment to the entire meal, particularly fish-based first courses, cray, caviar, prawns, & sturgeon.
