Northern Italian Prosecco Wine

If you are not familiar with Prosecco, you would be forgiven for looking at it and thinking it may be Champagne or Cartizze. Prosecco is a sparkling white wine made from Prosecco grapes. It has a long history in northern Italy which is why the region and the wine produced in the area are so loved.

What does DOC Stand for?

The labels DOC and DOCG are used to indicate:
• The grape’s origin and type of grape(*2).
• The quality of the wine.
• How the grapes were harvested (hand-picked or machine harvested)(*3).
• If an official tasted the wine before it was bottled.

Villa Sandi Prosecco DOC Guaranteed Origin

The DOC label guarantees the grapes were grown in either the province of Friuli Venezia Giulia or Veneto(*4). In the case of Villa Sandi Prosecco, the grapes were grown in Treviso, Veneto(*6). If you are looking for genuine Prosecco, look for DOC and DOCG on the labels.
You are welcome to contact the Summer Hill Wine Shop store by phone (02 9798 7282) or online if you have any questions.

Villa Sandi

For generations, Villa Sandi has been home to the Moretti Polegato family(*5). There, they have perfectly mastered the ancient tradition of winemaking. The family have also brought Prosecco into the modern era with outstanding contemporary wines(*5). Additionally, the Villa Sandi estates are as impeccable and prestigious as the wines.

The Garden of Venice

Garden of Venice - Villa Sandi Prosecco DOC Treviso Il Fresco (Summer Bargain)

Villa Sandi is in the ‘Garden of Venice’(*6). The region is a short drive from Venice and takes people to the glamour of the countryside. Rolling, luscious hills draped in natural wonders and of course, flourishing vineyards. This is the area where Venice’s nobles once escaped the city. In a way, it is like the Hamptons of New York.

The Villa Sandi Prosecco shines amongst the Prosecco from northern Italy. This lovely Italian Prosecco is quite pale straw in colour and has exceptional fizz – or as the Italians would say, ‘perlage’(*7,8).

Aroma: The aroma is fruity and floral with hints of apple and wildflowers(*1,7,9).
Palate: The palate is quite crisp, fresh, flavoursome and has a lot of clean fruit.
Finish: It has quite a long, crisp, dry finish on the wine. It is well-rounded and pleasant(*1,7,9).

This polished blend is fruity, well-rounded, and perfect for warm summer weekends.
