Zucchetto Estate Vineyards (Veneto)
Current vintage DOCG prosecco from the original territory is unlike most prosecco you’ve tasted here in the states, it’s better!
The area is known for its quality due to the steep hills and sun exposure. Locals say that Valdobbiadene is the place of truly heroic winemakers due to the difficulty in harvesting the grapes (Prosecco is made from 100% glera, the grape varietal sometimes simply called prosecco). There are no machines used in harvesting, it is done only by hand and timing is everything!
Another important factor is selecting the highest quality prosecco is the vintage. Prosecco is a single vintage wine, meaning it goes from harvest to fermentation to the bottle and should be enjoyed within 12–18 months of bottling.
Fasoli Gino Estate (Veneto)
Biodynamic means wines made using the principles of biodynamic agriculture, both the agricultural methods and the handling and processing of the fruit post-harvest.
As far as big reds go, Fasoli Gino is our top pick for this region.
The family tradition started in 1925, with the mission statement “to produce unique wines.” They are a 100% green production and treat their vines as though they were their beloved children.
