The deliciously refreshing Anna Spinato Prosecco hails from the Veneto region in Italy. It has been awarded the highest rating in Italy - DOCG. There are currently only 74 wines in Italy with this designation. DOC in comparison has around 329 with this designation. Having been given this rating, wine drinkers from around the world are assured quality with each sip of this wonderful prosecco.
This prosecco is playfully light on the palate - very refreshing and a great way to start the meal. As the name suggests, it is quite dry and leans towards the acidic side. It’s the perfect wine for a hot summer day. To the eye: a light straw color is noticeable. In the right light, one will notice pearlescent shimmers. On the nose: Fruity overtones supplemented slightly by flowers and minerals. On the palate: strong thoughts of apricot and a little yeastiness akin to bread crust.
For food pairing, use this prosecco as an aperitif. It can be paired with very light dishes, such as fish. Pairing with other meats will overpower the delicateness of the wine. As such, pair this with a delicate protein. A wonderful dish would be mussels cooked in olive oil, garlic, and a hit of white wine. Serve this on crusty sourdough grilled in the same oil. A playful dinner with a beautiful wine.
Fine sparkling wine must be handled with care. For short-term storage (a few days to a month), you can keep your bottle upright—but away from bright or artificial light. For long-term storage, especially for vintage cuvées, you must store the bottles on their side in a wine rack or cellar to keep the cork from drying out. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 10°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 1 to 3 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
