How to enjoy Prosecco
Dining with Prosecco Superiore
Refreshing, versatile and with only moderate alcohol, Conegliano Valdobbiadene is ideal for all sorts of occasions.
It has become famous worldwide as a must at “aperitivo-time”, a ritual that has now become popular at an international level, establishing an iconic moment of the Italian lifestyle. However, thanks to its variable level of sweetness, Prosecco Superiore is also suitable for drinking throughout a meal, particularly in the Brut version.
It should always be served “straight” (never mixed) and the secret of matching it with food is succeeding in combining its elegant, non-invasive personality with dishes that show off the quality of the ingredients, thanks to cooking methods that preserve their original flavours and aromas
The qualities of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore can be enjoyed to the full in the year following the harvest. Over the years, its aromas evolve from fruity and floral notes to more mature, vinous ones.
Bottles should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from light and heat.
How and When to Serve Prosecco Superiore
Conegliano Valdobbiadene should be served at a temperature of between 6° and 8°C, and to enjoy it we recommend a fairly large, tulip-shaped glass, which allows you to appreciate its wealth of aromas. To show off the qualities of our wine to the full, Riedel specifically designed the Prosecco Superiore glass, with a long stem so that your hand stays well away from the bowl: this glass has the perfect shape for appreciating all of the wine’s aromas. Flutes or coupes are not recommended.
