Ca’ di Prata Prosecco: A Brief Overview

Ca’ di Prata Prosecco: A Brief Overview

Ca’ di Prata Prosecco: A Brief Overview.

This afternoon, we’ll be sampling three different Ca’ di Prata Proseccos. A Brut Prosecco DOC, an Extra Dry Prosecco Rose DOC, and an Extra Dry Prosecco Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG are among the wines in the group, which also includes a Brut Prosecco DOC. We were given sampling samples of all three wines.

Its bubbles, low alcohol content, and fruity tastes are the characteristics of Prosecco that I find most enjoyable. Another appealing characteristic of Prosecco is its affordability, which makes it an excellent cocktail component.

Winemakers in the northeastern region of Italy’s Veneto region and across the region of Friuli–Venezia Giulia produces prosecco to sell to customers.

Rather than in a bottle, the second fermentation (bubble causing) is carried out in pressure tanks, which allows the wine to be finished more quickly and retain its fruit and flowery qualities. This faster second fermentation also helps to keep the price of the product down.

Using at least 85 percent Glera grapes is required for all categories of Prosecco on the wine quality pyramid, from Prosecco DOC all the way up to Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG.

In the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG category, the requirements for prosecco production differ per category (increasing more strict as one moves up the quality pyramid), therefore the labeling might be confusing. Keeping things simple today, though, is our goal.

Ripe pears and yellow apples are the starting flavors, followed by white blossoms and a pleasant texture with mild acidity. SRP is $16 for a 12% abv.

Blended with other types, Glera accounts for 85% of the mix (including Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay). The words Brut on the label indicate that the residual sugar content is less than 12 g/l of the beverage..

This is the widest category of Prosecco, with the greatest production area and fewest severe production regulations. Prosecco DOC is the most expensive category of Prosecco. It is manufactured by Latentia Winery in Prata di Pordenone, in the Friuli–Venezia Giulia region, and the grapes for this Brut Prosecco and the Rosé that will follow are taken from vineyards in the region.

DOC Prosecco Ca’ di Prata Extra Dry Rosé Ca’ di Prata 2019

Ca’ di Prata 2019 Extra Dry Rosé Prosecco DOC is a sparkling wine produced by Ca’ di Prata in the Veneto region of Italy.
Intensely berry and citrus-scented, Ca’ di Prata 2019 Extra Dry Rosé Prosecco DOC is light pink in color with abundant bubbles and notes of berries and citrus fruits.

Berry and earthy bramble flavors mingle with toasted almonds and citrus notes in this wine, which has a round mouthfeel and a medium acidity. Bubbles are quite filling for the mouth and stomach. SRP is $17 for an 11 percent abv.

85% Glera is combined with 15% Pinot Noir to create this blend. According to the label, the residual sugar in Extra Dry is between 12 and 17 g/l.

It has been under consideration by the Prosecco consortium for some years, but the new laws enabling Rosé Prosecco DOC only became official in November 2020, after several years of deliberation.

Glera must account for at least 85 percent of the blend, with 10 to 15 percent Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) added for color and taste. The initial release of vintage is permitted after the first of January of the preceding year’s production.

In other words, this is the first time we’ve had a certified Rosé Prosecco DOC. In order to be labeled Rosé, Prosecco wines must be vintage-dated, and the Rosé distinction applies only to Prosecco that has been designated as DOC.

Prosecco from Conegliano Valdobbiadene is a kind of sparkling wine that is made from grapes that are grown in the region.

It is mandatory to use grapes cultivated in the tiny, mountainous territory between the communes of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene for the production of Prosecco DOCG wine. In terms of liveliness and complexity, these wines are a little more developed.
