2009 Silvano Follador "Dosaggio Zero" Prosecco

SKU #1082676

If you love bone dry Champagne, you will LOVE this brand new release from one of our favorite Prosecco producers. It's made in the Methode Champenoise tradition, which means it's made bubbly in the bottle just like Champagne! There is no added dosage; it is as dry as they come. We were a little skeptical before trying it, but after a glass or two it was like awakening from a slumber to a higher level of Prosecco. (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian buyer) Official Stats - 100% Prosecco; Residual Sugar 0 grams per liter; Production 3,500 bottles.

I'm a huge fan of this Prosecco! I love its nose of fresh fruit with hints of almond cookie, its Champagne-like combo of breadth and focus on the palate, and dry, laser-like finish. Delicious on its own or in between bites of cured meats, olives, and other tasty bites. Prosecco for Champagne-lovers.

I was lucky enough to visit this estate a year or so ago and tasted this wine when it was still in tank. Theoretically, a non dosage Prosecco sounds like a bad idea, as I think most producers would end up with a somewhat tart, shrill bottling, lacking the inherent enjoyable qualities of Prosecco. But the vineyard holdings of Silvano Follador and their expertise in the cellar mean they knock this one out of the park. All the pretty peachy, apricot, white flower and citrus notes one would expect are there on the nose, but on the palate instead of a slightly off dry soft fruitiness, one finds a racy minerality, significant fruit extract and palate wieght balanced by a squeaky clean acidity, with overall excellent balance and great length on the finish. It's no wonder the geeky sommelier set in Italy, from Venice to Milan to Rome and all points in between, consider Silvano Follador in a league of it's own. Lovely as an aperitif, or with lighter far such as grilled peaches over a bed of frisee. CM

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
