Tasting Notes

Ruffino Prosecco is fruity and fragrant with clean notes of citrus, pears and apples along with slight hints of hawthorn, wisteria and elder. Fine bubbles caress the palate, while intense flavors of apples and peaches give the wine a pleasing finish.

The Story

Prosecco is a sparkling white wine made only in specific provinces of northeastern Italy. All Prosecco wines are made primarily from the Glera grape, a native variety with origins in the lovely village of Prosecco, near Trieste.

The Glera grape gives the wine structure and body and is considered to be the heart of Prosecco wines, just as Sangiovese is the heart of Tuscan wines. Ruffino Prosecco DOC is made entirely of Glera grapes. Its easy-to-drink style makes it a versatile food companion. Prosecco is also perfect as an apéritif or mixed into popular cocktails.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Enjoy Ruffino Prosecco on its own or mix it into a favorite cocktail. It's also delicious served with pizza, fish, shellfish, or white meat dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Grapes for Prosecco come from highly desirable vineyards in northeastern Italy. The first stage in making Prosecco follows traditional white wine methods. In the second stage, the Charmat method is used to bring about a secondary fermentation before the wine is bottled under pressure, preserving all of the fresh fruit characteristics of the wine.
