Vintage Prosecco, best fruit of vintage
ABOUT THE WINERY
Founded in 1878 as a Veronese wine trader the company developed in the early decades of the 20th century thanks to the activities carried out by Terence Biscardo, the true founder of the company. In the 30s and 40s then even more so after the war in the 50s, Luigi took over the running of the business and thanks to this the Biscardo company soon became one of the most important in the region with cutting-edge investments in the winemaking and bottling areas which lead to new markets opening up, among the first were Italy, USA, England and naturally the rest of Europe.
Today the heirs of this traditional Italian wine family, Maurizio and Martino Biscardo, are still following the path of research, quality and innovation – all important aspects which characterise this family brand.
ABOUT THE WINE
A 'Millesimato' Prosecco meaning from the vintage year, in this case 2016. Sourced from Veneto DOC and made from 100% Glera grapes and limited each vintage. Firstly the bottle is stunning, you have to love the Italians, they have some of most beautiful and amazing wine bottles. Bubbles are fine and persistent, great uplifted/aromatic nose of green apple and blossom, classic Glera aromatics. Palate very clean and quite balanced, good fruit weight and nice dry finish. Great refreshing style, bring on the oysters!!!!
