Follador Prosecco Superiore Torri di Credazzo 2017

The vineyards around Valdobbiadene hold one of the keys for those who are looking for quality Italian Prosecco.  Just a short drive west of the township of Valdobbiadene, Torri di Credazzo is not only a beloved landmark with its towers on a rocky knoll, it is surrounded by picturesque, sloping vineyards that take advantage of the terrain.  

In this wine, it is easy to see why Prosecco has become a go-to bubbles for so many. It is fruity and as an ‘Extra Dry’ wine, there is a slug of residual sugar (13 g/l) to add a fullness to the body and an even balance to its acid levels.  This balance allows the bready, nutty pear and apple fruit to shine.

It is the type of wine that will move easily from aperitif to lunch or dinner.
