Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - This prosecco pours pale straw with a fine head before releasing a floral aroma of lilies and apples. The carbonation balances out the fruity sweetness of pear and apple flavors before a clean, crisp finish that refreshes the palate..June/2016
La Marca Prosecco is produced from 100% Glera grapes harvested in early September, and sourced from hundreds of small vineyards throughout the region. The grapes were crushed immediately after harvest before being pressed in gentle membrane presses. The juice was allowed to cold-settle before the initial fermentation occurred in stainless steel at 59-65º F. The still wine underwent aging on the lees prior to a secondary fermentation using the Charmat process at a temperature of 59F.
