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.
Drusian Ruralia is a lightly sparkling wine that focuses on the grape and the terroir rather than any construct of a Prosecco 'style'. Cool climate off clay and limestone soil, there is a lovely perfume and colour to this wine - an excellent food or cheese wine. The string cap is a hark back to past tradition and it looks cool!
