Prosecco’s schtick is to be light and fresh and for Italians, Prosecco is an anytime wine, not just for celebrations. Not only is it an aperitif, it’s a wine served with dinner, an after dinner digestive or mixed as part of a cocktail. Cue the Canella Prosecco Superiore DOCG.
Top notch producer, Canella, was established in 1947, and is still run by the Canella family. The estate is located in the area of Conegliano Valdobbiadene sub-region, considered the best in Prosecco and which was promoted to DOCG status (highest appellation) in 2009. Prosecco from this area may be labelled as Superiore.
The Canella Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. is made from 100% Glera grapes grown in the hilly area of Valdobbiadene, and is the result of choosing the best lots of the vintage. The Canella Prosecco Superiore DOCG is elegant, aromatic and light at just 11% alcohol, it has however, just that a little more weight and complexity than the average Prosecco.
“The wine is a brilliant straw yellow with fine, persistent perlage and fruity aromas of peach, apple, pear and citrus fruit. The palate gracefully balances zingy acidity and a subtle hint of sweetness, richness and silky-smooth texture. It is ideal as an aperitif, but also perfect with seafood.” Michael Trembarth.
