La Gioiosa Prosecco Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G Extra Dry
La Gioiosa et Amerosa (Their Joyous and Loving) Proscecco.
La Gioiosa represents the tradition of winemaking, which the Moreti Polegato family have been carrying our for three generations, and it's in perfect symbiosis with the land of Prosecco and the Montello and Piave wines. Their name pays tribute to the old definition of of the province of Treviso, Marca Gioiosa et Amorosa (Joyous and Amorous March) underlying the sociable lifestyle of its inhabitants.
Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG can only be made in the Treviso province of Veneto on the hills between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Producers from Valdobbiadene have recently tended to skip the mention of Conegliano on their front label, calling their wine Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. There is also the smaller Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG, produced near the town of Asolo. While the bulk of Prosecco DOC is grown on low-lying plains in an extended area covering 20,000 hectares, Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore DOCG is grown exclusively on hillside vineyards in a far smaller growing area totaling 6,586 hectares. The steepness of the hills of Valdobbiadene means that everything, from pruning to picking, is principally done by hand. The manual aspect, especially for the harvest, further increases quality.
A pale straw colour, fruity, flowery with citrus aromatics followed by the fresh and lively fizz. A simple, enjoyable sparkling. Dry finish.
