This Friulvini Extra Dry Prosecco, which confusingly means it's just off dry, was created especially for us by La Delizia. The Glera (Prosecco) grapes came into the winery at perfect ripeness and were fermented at 16°C to capture all of the fresh, fruity nuances of this terrific grape variety. The fermentation was done by the Charmat method in stainless steel tanks and this took around 40 days, creating a very fine bead and a very elegant Prosecco.
