6 Facts About Prosecco “Venti22due”
- Azienda Agricola Vinicollina Tesini is on the northern Italian hillside Rive Cozzuolo in Vittorio Veneto (TV), 30 minutes north of Venice. It is one of only 43 designated “Rive” hillsides in Italy.
- Prosecco Venti22due is Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G (“Garantita”) which is the premier denomination for Prosecco in the world.
- Azienda Agricola Vinicollina Tesini has over 1000 “Glera” vines that are cared for and harvested under strict regulations of the Consorzio Tutella del Vino Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore... including steep hillsides, no irrigation allowed, strict sugar minimums of grapes and hand picking of harvests only. Yearly production is limited under these statutes.
- Prosecco Venti22due is made in the style of a spumanti “Extra Dry”, the most popular style in Italy. It is often enjoyed by Italians all day long; from morning with a briosche or panetone to late evenings with gelatto or dolce.
- Only 2238, individually numbered bottles, were made from the 2013 harvest. It is only available to family, members of the Consortium Prosecco Venti22due and their friends. The string which holds the blue Vinicollina Tesini tag is the actual string, which years ago (prior to the modern wire tab cap), was the only method used to hold a cork, under pressure, in the bottle.
- Prosecco Venti22due should be served at the ideal temperature of 45 degrees F (4-5 degrees C). At this temperature you can almost taste the aroma of the apple and cherry trees that grow on the top and bottom edges of the vineyard, Vinicollina Tesini.
