Ruggeri “Santo Stefano” Prosecco Superiore NV
In 2019 the hills of Valdobbiadene, where the vines for this wine grow, were declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in a large part due to their role in the production of Prosecco. The Prosecco or Glera grape variety is often mixed with Bianchetta, Perera and Verdisio to make a spumante (sparkling) wine style. It is however made using the Charmat method for obtaining fizziness. This means that the secondary ferment has not occurred in the bottle like Champagne but in large tanks. The result is a wine that is immediately ready to drink. The Ruggeri Santo Stefano is definitely fresh and easy. This example is a dry style of Prosecco with fine bubbles.
