Wine Thursday: La Tordera Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut
posted on August 24th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas
Okay, we have a great holiday weekend just around the corner where we can all enjoy the fruits of one’s ‘labor’. So as much as wine and craft beer sounds really tasty and will certainly be flowing, the notion of a chilled, crisp, fruity sparkler is very enticing. We found the perfect elixir, La Tordera Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut- This fine, fruit laced bubbly offers floral notes of white flowers, pear and lemon drop, with robust flavors of apple, citrus and ripe papaya. Even though the wine is created in a Brut style, there is ample bright fruit. The other unique element to this Italian sparkler is that it is vintage dated, 2014. That is indeed a rare offering and adds to the overall appeal of this gem. The perfect foil for grilled seafood and shellfish, as well as Prosciutto, stuffed mushrooms, creamy sauces and spicy Asian entrees.
Prosecco is produced in the hills of Veneto in northeastern Italy, where the winery is located, and boasts the longest history in the production of this sparkling wine. The Vettoretti family has been growing grapes for four generations, and their vineyard sits on the lower portion of a hillside where the wide temperature fluctuations provide for an extended ripening period and, ultimately, very expressive grapes. Glera grapes (formerly called Prosecco) account for the vast majority of this cuvee, with small amounts of Bianchetta and Verdiso added.
