PROSECCO

ITALY

METHOD: Tank

PROSECCO SALES HAVE skyrocketed in recent years, largely thanks to the price tag. Classy but not as expensive as Champagne, it is seen by many as a great alternative fizz. So what’s the difference? Prosecco is produced using the efficient and inexpensive tank method, rather than the traditional method. As a wine designed to be consumed young, the tank method allows Prosecco to showcase its clean and floral aromas. The name Prosecco comes from the small town in the north of Italy where it all began. The region was promoted to DOC (quality guarantee) and DOCG (highest quality guarantee) status in 2009.
