Prosecco Expert, Amanda has been running Prosecco Tastings and Prosecco Tours specialising in the finest quality Prosecco Superiore.
There is no established brand when it comes to Prosecco and supermarkets generally tend to concentrate on selling the lower quality, cheaper versions. That is why we've set up www.iloveprosecco.com so Prosecco connoisseurs can enjoy some of our specially selected Prosecco Superiore, not generally available in the UK.
What is Prosecco
Prosecco is an appellation, not a single sparkling wine. This means it comes in different types:
Spumante - a full on sparkly version with a deliciousness of foamy bubbles, generally up to 5 bars of pressure.
Frizzante - a nicely quaffable, semi-sparkling variety, very refreshing, with a maximum of 2.5 bars of pressure.
Tranquillo - a very, very lightly sparkling wine, perfectly elegant with only 1 bar of pressure.
Prosecco is made with a minimum of 85% of the glera grape. Many of the producers make it with 100% of this delicate grape although they are allowed to combine it with local grapes such as Verdiso, Perera, Bianchetta or Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco or Chardonnay as long as these other grapes amount to less than 15%.
The Pyramid of Quality shows the six levels of Prosecco available. Most widely available are the Prosecco DOC varieties, shown on the first three levels of the pyramid.
Where iloveprosecco is different is that we only stock Prosecco Superiore DOCG quality, Rive excellence and above.
