Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG

The Canella winery began in 1947 with Luciano Canella. His great interest in wine led him to work in his mother’s restaurant, where he was put in charge of food-and-wine pairings, igniting a great passion for wine in him. This “thirst” turned into a desire for his own label. He finally set up a modern winery and specialized in Prosecco and wine-based cocktails. As it turned out, the enterprising founder had the vision and foresight to invest in what would become the best-selling spumante in Italy.
The winery is now run by Luciano’s children, Alessandra, Lorenzo, Nicoletta and Monica, as well as grandson Tommaso, who represents the third generation.
Canella is located in the historic heart of the appellation – Conegliano – and the vineyards are located at the perfect altitude for gradual grape ripening, which leads to intense fragrance and perfect acidity. This dynamic city north of Treviso is also a national winemaking landmark, home to Italy’s most ancient winemaking school (Scuola Enologica di Conegliano, founded in 1876).
One of the most precious traditions of the Veneto, Prosecco is the more popular name of a wonderfully fragrant and zesty native grape called Glera. Vinified using the Charmat method, this is an extremely appealing sparkler, showing a youthful freshness, relatively low alcohol content and delicate perlage making it ideal for friendly aperitifs. The Canella family suggest tasting this sparkler in the unique Riedel crystal glass that was especially created by the family with the famous Austrian glass-makers to enhance the wines aromas and fragrance.
