Wine Maker Notes
After pressing of the grapes and clarification of the must, primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats for 10 days. After fermentation is complete, a second fermentation occurs in glass-lined tanks over 45 days. This process, known as Charmat, produces the bubbles to create the sparkling wine while preserving the inherent freshness of the Prosecco grape (an advantage over the more time-intensive Champagne method).

Tiamo Prosecco pairs well with lighter cuisine food, especially fish/shellfish and softer cheeses. It’s an ideal aperitif and with any appetizer. It is also an excellent base for cocktails—such as the Bellini or Mimosa. Ideally serve at 6-8°C, about 45°F.
The name of the varietal, Prosecco, comes from the once Slovenian village of Prosecco that became a part of North-eastern Italy in 1918. It is a white grape variety that has been cultivated since 1800, on the hillsides in this region centered on Valdobbiadene. It is best know for its delicate and aromatic fruit and floral flavors most frequently in the form of sparkling wine.
