Sorelle Bronca "Particella 68" Prosecco

SKU #1031180 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This has always been one of my favorite sparkling wines from northeast Italy. The Sorelle Bronca NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Particella 68 Brut is a single-vineyard expression (from parcel 68). The wine boasts a beautiful and delicate bouquet with wild flowers, soft peach, white violets and honey. The quality of the bubbling is fine and laser sharp. You get excellent value here.

K&L Notes

The Bronca sisters grow their own fruit in steep hillside vineyards, then make base wine and perform the secondary (sparkling) fermentation on non-vintage batches three or four times a year for optimal freshness. Low yields and hillside-grown fruit ensures that the wine has good concentration and acidity, this last necessary to balance the traditional Extra-Dry level of sweetness. (Extra-Dry is slightly less dry than Brut, confusingly. Both terms are used to describe the amount of sweetness in sparkling wines. The Prosecco drunk in Italy is always Extra-Dry; the pear notes only emerge when the wine is not bone-dry, which is why Brut isn't as good and is mostly exported.) Try this Prosecco with some olives and a slice of salami while deciding what to make for dinner, but it would also be good with a light lunch. Pretend you're in Venice, looking out over the canals.

This is the best Prosecco that we sell. Period. It has a richness on the mid-palate that you typically do not find, but more importantly the flavors are pure, clean and delightful. An open bottle is an empty bottle.
