Sparkling /// Glera // Prosecco / Italy
Forget about the 200 million bottles of slop that get chewed up by the chains - they are not Prosecco or even wine. Our eyes were opened during a trip to Prosecco last year. True Prosecco is steeped in tradition and heart, made without chemicals and additions. Forget the unnatural sweetening and hangover the next day.
Colfondo refers to a secondary fermentation on it's lees rather than in tank - a method closer to Champagne. It has very unique flavour characteristics and an edgy and energetic fizz. Another wine that will go magnificently with food. Forget what you know. This is life after Prosecco! STSWine
