Bellussi Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

SKU #1039233 Wine Enthusiast

 Aromas of apple, delicate white flowers and a whiff of chopped herbs lead the way. The round palate offers creamed pear, yellow peach and candied lemon drop alongside firm acidity and a creamy mousse. (KO)  (12/2015)

K&L Notes

This sparkling white wine was obtained, as you might guess by the name, from the Prosecco grape using the Charmat method in autoclave. It is the epitome of Prosecco, where the harmony of its elegant body is accompanied by a delicate bouquet. The freshness and fragrance of this wine, together with a fine and persistent perlage, make it ideal for any occasion. And the price doesn't hurt either! Serve at a cooler temperature than most whites, and watch bottle after bottle disappear at your next party.

Sweetly citric; more orange-y than lemon/lime, with a bit of crisp apple, this prosecco still cleaves to the drier end of the spectrum. The texture is almost the most salient feature to my mind: the mousse is generous, but oh-so-soft, and provides a wonderful frame for the gentle suggestion of sweetness implicit in the wine’s flavors. The only thing that will bring you up short is finding yourself at the bottom of the bottle.

Excellent quality Prosecco at a bargaine price. This bubbly is from Valdobbiadene, the classic center of the historical Prosecco growing zone. Bright, clean, fresh, and on the drier side of Extra Dry. Excellent mousse to give you that rich feeling without that expolosive CO2 release. Great Prosecco for just about any time!

The wine offers intensity and precision with focused attention on acidity and freshness. A great party pleaser.

Bellussi is a vineyard in the Valdobbiadene region north of Venice…Prosecco is a late-ripening, delicate white wine grape which is grown extensively in this area. Together they have produced a fresh, crisp, sparkling wine that our Italian wine-buyer calls the “epitome of Prosecco.” I have to agree. This is a very dry, refreshing sparkler with delicate flavors of pear and yellow apple. It is subtle and elegant, but not too soft to be forgettable. Great value!

This is can't miss sparkling. Apple notes, a clean and dry palate, and plenty of richness. Prosecco has never been so enjoyable and reasonable. Party planners take note.

Classic easy drinking. Plenty of apple on the nose and a very crisp, dry finish. Price is right for stocking up!

- 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.
