Description

Details

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. From Magnum it is super cool and brilliant for parties!


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 there is good and there is not so good, there artisan and there is very very industrial! 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 focuses on quality over quantity, making only around 100 000 bottles a year of various Cuvee.

    What a beautiful wine. It's natural but really approachable. Something you can enjoy with the entire family.

    Fresh, crisp and tastes pretty classic.
