This episode I am joined by the Global Export Director of Villa Sandi, Flavio Geretto.

Villa Sandi is one of the most important producers of the Prosecco region with an extensive history. You will learn all about them and then we will be talking about the different regions of Prosecco and specifically looking at the differences of Asolo DOCG and Valdobbiadene DOCG. You will also learn why the Cartizze Hill is considered a Grand Cru site. I will touch on the Charmat Method at the end, and by the end of this, you will have a much better idea of grape, wine styles, and the hierachy of Prosecco.

The wines we tried are all from Bella Vita Shop:

PROSECCO DOC ROSÉ BRUT MILLESIMATO "IL FRESCO" - £14.99

"ASOLO" PROSECCO SUPERIORE BRUT MILLESIMATO DOCG - £15.99

PROSECCO MILLESIMATO BRUT DOCG - £15.99

And this is the Cartizze wine that sits top of the pyramid:

"LA RIVETTA" PROSECCO CARTIZZE DOCG - £29.99
