2016 Silvano Follador Prosecco Superiore Brut Nature

SKU #1311157 Vinous

 Silvano Follador is in my opinion the single best producer of Prosecco today. (Ian D'Agata)

K&L Notes

Just a note to clear up some nomenclature issues with this brand: Silvano Follador has added an extra word to their label, "Nature." It means that the finished wine has less than 3 grams per liter of residual sugar, even though their wines are Brut, and Brut can be decidedly higher. Nature is a designation that is more definitive. Most Prosecco is Extra Dry and that is 12-20 grams per liter which could go from dry-ish to outright sweet. Follador is looking to distance themselves from the rest of the pack.

During our visit to this winery in 2016, Alberta Follador mentioned that her brother Silvano was a perfectionist. This was hardly a surprise to me as Follador is the finest Prosecco I've come across. While most of the Prosecco hitting the market is made in an Extra Dry (slightly sweet) style, Follador is a Brut (dry) which makes it not only somewhat unique but also in a class all its own. It really is that good.

It's back!!! This is a perfect wine for this time of year. This Prosecco has been one of K&L’s best sellers since we started bringing it in many years ago. There is melon and green apple, and it is crisp and floral on the palate. A long finish and a subtle mousse make this delicious wine a sure bet for your table. This wine will work well as an alternative to Champagne. Fun bubbles and great value for the last days of summer.

The brother-and-sister team of Silvano and Alberta Follador make the best Prosecco I have ever tasted! Biodynamic, their Prosecco is magnificently balanced, delicate and features sophisticated fruit aromatics. It is a blend of the famed Cartizze vineyard and another close by in Valdobbiadene. This wine doesn’t feel like “regular” Prosecco it feels more like a Franciacorta it has that much power but without the size. It has a mineral driven feel, flinty, focused and rich, it has a bit of brioche like flavors that add to the complexity. The Best Prosecco made, without a doubt!
Drink from 2017 to 2019

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.
