Organic Prosecco

DOC

Prosecco is a white grape variety that has been cultivated in the Veneto region of Italy since 1800 and that today makes one of the world’s most delicious sparkling wines.

The best vineyards for growing Prosecco are located in and around the village of Valdobiadene and the Tiamo Prosecco is produced exclusively from certified organic grapes from that region.

The wine is fresh and fruity with lovely rich aromas of apple and pear with a hint of citrus that fade into the floral bouquet. The Tiamo Prosecco pairs well with lighter cuisine food, especially fish/shellfish and softer cheeses. It’s also an ideal aperitif and is an excellent base for cocktails—such as the Bellini or Mimosa.

Organic Prosecco

DOC

Veneto, Italy

Location/Origin

The Valdobbiadene region is ideally suited for the Prosecco grape, where the particular composition of the hilly soil, the exposition to sun, the frequent rains and the constantly mild temperature between April and October combine to provide the best conditions. The grapes for Tiamo Prosecco are sourced from certified organic vineyards in and around Valdobbiadene. Soils: Moraines, sandstone and clay

Winemaking

After pressing of the grapes and clarification of the must, primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats for 10 days. After fermentation is complete, a second fermentation occurs in glass-lined tanks over 45 days. This process, known as Charmat, produces the bubbles to create the sparkling wine while preserving the inherent freshness of the Prosecco grape (an advantage over the more time-intensive Champagne method).

Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

Tiamo Prosecco has a green straw color and charming aromas of apples and pears and gardenia flowers. On the palate is it bright, fresh and fruity with fine bubbles. It pairs well with lighter cuisine food, especially fish/shellfish and softer cheeses. It’s an ideal aperitif and with any appetizer. It is also an excellent base for cocktails—such as the Bellini or Mimosa.
