12 bottles of Prosecco Spumante Brut, La Cavea, Veneto, Italy
NV Prosecco Spumante Brut, La Cavea, Veneto, Italy (11.5%)
This Prosecco is much less sweet than most, being Brut in style (“Extra Dry” which you see on most Prosecco labels is actually a sweeter style!). It takes courage to make a drier fizz as there is must less space to hide, the grapes have to be pristine for a balanced and fulsome wine and any deficiency is much more noticeable when not masked by sugar. “La Cavea” refers to the beautiful Roman architecture of Vicenza in northeastern Italy from where this Prosecco hails. Healthy grapes are no problem here where all the fruit is sourced from hillside vineyards.
