Wine Description

(From NV Vintage) Wne is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.

Winemaker's Notes

(From NV Vintage) La Marca Prosecco is produced from 100% Glera grapes harvested in early September, and sourced from hundreds of small vineyards throughout the region. The grapes were crushed immediately after harvest before being pressed in gentle membrane presses. The juice was allowed to cold-settle before the initial fermentation occurred in stainless steel at 59-65º F. The still wine underwent aging on the lees prior to a secondary fermentation using the Charmat process at a temperature of 59F.

    WS Top 100 list; not as dry as French Champagne; creates a softer, more approachable texture w/fresh fruit flavors of peach & citrus.

    (From NV Vintage) Produced solely from Prosecco grapes, the wine is a bright pale yellow, with straw notes in the glass, with a tight bead; the nose and palate both enjoy a wide range of citrus and tree fruit, with a toasty undertone to complement the fruit; the acidity shows in the finish, along with good weight making this a food wine with great flexibility.
