A pleasant climate, so that historically the Venetian nobles loved to spend the summer in these places to escape the heat of the lagoon. The history of Prosecco is an old story that identifies the Prosecco wine known since the Roman Empire. Prosecco comes from Glera vine and is characterized by a brilliant straw yellow color with greenish reflections. The aroma is intense, fruity, with notes of apple, lemon and grapefruit. It has a flavor with good acidity, fresh flavor, good texture. The taste is pleasant and harmonious.
