2012 Silvano Follador Prosecco Brut DOCG

SKU #1137668

(Just a note to clear up some nomenclature issues with this brand. Follador has added an extra word to their label, "Nature", I hadn't heard of it before but it means less than 3gpl of residual sugar, so even though their wines are Brut, Brut can be decidedly higher, Nature is a designation that is more definitive. Most Prosecco is Extra Dry and that is 12-20gpl which could go from Dry'ish to outright sweet, Follador is looking to distance themselves from the rest of the pack. This is for the Brut as well as the Cartizze, Follador is one of the very few non Sweet Cartizze (Cartizze is a very large single vineyard, 260 acres, and 20-35gpl) ) Greg St.Clair K&L's Wine Buyer

Forget what you think you know about Prosecco, as this is going to change all that. Silvano Follador produces arguably the best Prosecco in Italy, and this bottling, espically for the price, is just stunning. Plenty of the peach, apricot and dried flowers one gets in well made Prosecco, but with an underlying minerality and incredible depth and complexity. We were lucky enough to visit this property a few years back and it was very impressive to say the least, and it seems the wines just keep getting better and better. Wow! 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.
