Sottoriva Col Fondo Prosecco, natural method, cloudy, light, dry, refreshing, authentic Italian sparkling wine. Sottoriva is unique Prosecco, made in the nearly lost traditional method of spontaneous re-fermentation in the bottle with no added yeast or sugar. The colour of the wine is unusually cloudy, almost grey. This natural wild colour is the result of a wine which has had nothing removed post fermentation. The dead yeast cells, lees and other solids that colour the wine give it its unique character and honest identity. It is dry, light, delicate in aroma and on the palate. The mousse is light and naturally uplifting. This is wine of pure simple enjoyment and unpretentious drinkability. Allow it to settle in the bottle for an hour before popping the cap but then finish the murky leesy last glass as well as this the soul of the wine and of the Valdobbiadene region. Also available in Magnum form, which is a pretty spectacular way of drinking it. Remember Prosecco or any really good sparkling wine is always better in a proper wine glass which displays the aroma is easy to drink from. Flute glasses are for chinkin, not for drinkin!

When the fizzy wine quaffers of the UK got into Prosecco, the producers of the small region in the Veneto must have been dancing with joy.

They knew we would put this stuff away and by heck we do! But, there are many faces to Prosecco, all are charming, fresh, youthful and easy but amongst the highly industrial, it is rare to find such artisanal gems making their way into the UK market. Maurizio Favrel is still a young guy and he is now well established as one of the best small produces in the region. He is based in Sussegana at a winery started by his Grandfather Gregorio. He focusses on quality over quantity, making only around 100 000 bottles a year of various Cuvee, using traditional methods such as Col Fondo, minimal sulphur and spontaneous refermentation.

    I love this prosecco, it’s dry and moreish but slightly left-field and a good conversation point – makes a great gift for those occasions that don’t call for champagne.

    This is probably my favourite prosecco and I’m over the moon to find it here online as I was having to travel quite a distance to a small Italian shop in London before. Don’t let the fact this is cloudy (and therefore different) put you off. It is incredibly smooth to drink, less fizzy than some bottles so you get less of an acidic after taste. But not too sweet either, in fact it is just perfect for a sunny afternoon.

    Brilliant wine. flinty dry with lots of fruity aftertaste .No lightweight ,unusual bottle top.
    serve it blind and most people will think champagne

    It hits all the right taste buds, great for pre dinner drinks and fish. One bottle of this cloudy prosecco is not enough, a must for Christmas and beyond . I love the quirky bottle top !

    I first experienced this prosecco at NOPI. It is such an excellent wine and perhaps a bit too moorish! The service from the BV team is first class and I will be using them for many more wine orders.

    Prosecco as it should be. Super dry, with great flavour and texture. Nothing like supermarket prosecco!

    We tasted this prosecco at Trullo in London and sought out a case straight away. Naturally cloudy, with a delicate, extremely satisfying citrus hit — I would choose this bottle over many champagnes for a genuinely delicious aperitif. It can hold its own with seafood… and if you were feeling very indulgent it would make a fantastic French 75! This was my first order from Buon Vino. The customer service was excellent, the delivery swift and everything in order (including a 10% case discount). Couldn’t ask for more. I just hope the supply doesn’t run out!

    Wow. How will I ever go back to mass produced Prosecco having had this simply beautifully cloudy bottle at our table. Discovered at Ottolenghi, a case was bought within hours of returning home. How I will save it until Christmas is anyone’s guess…let’s be honest. I’ll be ordering another case soon as I just can’t stop sharing it with friends and family. I’m like a proud parent of this charming child.

    Hi
    We discovered Prosecco col fondo in Venice and have loved it ever since.
    Much better than the normal stuff.
    This one is gorgeous! Perfect accompaniment to a British summer evening. There is one problem…you need a bottle each!!

    I first came across this wine at The Pollen Street Social Restaurant in London. It was delicious, and as a vegan who also looks for organic products this fitted the bill. These naturally produced wines are rare in restaurants and should be featured more. I was delighted to find this wine at Buono Vino.

    After having gone off Prosecco this is a totally different experience. None of the acidity, overly bubbly or sweet and no headache. Smooth almost too easy to drink. Shared many a bottle at the Spitalfields wine bar called Bottles and now very happy to have my own stash during lockdown.

    This is an impressive natural Prosecco, made with ancestral method and bottle with its yeasts. Dry, fresh and elegant, will make you reconsider everything you know about Prosecco
