The luxurious, fizzy taste of Italian sparkling wine is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Many people assume that all sparkling wine is Champagne, but this is far from the case. Champagne is usually made from three types of grapes that include Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. However, what makes Prosecco so special is the fact that it’s almost always produced from the prosecco grape. The name Prosecco even derives from the grape’s origins in the quaint village of Prosecco in Italy. Exquisite Italian Prosecco wine can be quite difficult to track down in the UK, which is why so many people turn to GP Brands, the leading stockist and seller of the best tasting wines from around the world.
GP Brands supplies a huge range of sparkling Italian wine, including Amata Prosécco, which is an elegant wine with hidden aromas of delicious green apple and juicy pear. It’s fine bubbles and crisp finish makes it the perfect wine to enjoy with meals and as a late night treat. Another excellent Italian sparkling wine is the Carpenè Malvolti Prosécco Di Conegliano 1868. This fruity wine is extra dry with a continuous stream of bubbles, making it one of GP Brands most popular sparkling Italian wines.
Feudi Di San Gregorio is a floral and fruity sparkling wine made from the juices of the Greco grape. It’s a fine wine with mixed flavours of mango, honey, pumpkin flowers and citrus fruits, which gives it a refreshing and crisp taste. If you’re in the mood for something a little more feminine, try the Carpenè Malvolti Rosé. Made from a selection of juicy Pinot Nero and Raboso grapes, this Prosecco Italy wine has floral aromas with very fine bubbles.
Have you ever wondered how prosecco Italian wine is made? Surprisingly, it’s a secret that not many people are aware of, which makes the allure of sparkling wine from Italy even more attractive. Different sparkling wines are made in different ways, but there are six methods that are the most common. These include traditional, ancestral, tank, transfer, dioise, charmat, soda and continuous.
Many prosecco wines are made using the tank method, which adds base wines with sugar and a yeast mixture into a big tank. The wine goes through its second fermentation and because of the amount of CO2 released, the tank is forced to pressurise. Following this, the wines are then filtered and bottled.
Many of the grapes used to make prosecco wine are harvested a lot earlier than normal wines and are picked carefully in August in order to keep the sweet acidity in the fruit alive.
One of the most important aspects of the production process of a good quality Italian sparkling wine is pressure levels. Wines with fine bubbles have a much higher pressure than those with larger bubbles. Through a process of carbonation, the grapes are harvested and delicately pressed.
