Valdo Prosecco

AG Pick: Valdo Oro Puro Prosecco

Ring in 2016 with a Prosecco that has the finesse of a fine French sparkling wine with a budget friendly price tag.

The Oro Puro Prosecco Superior DOCG Brut is made by Valdo, an Italian winery that was started in 1926 and purchased by the Bolla family in the 1940s. The estate and vineyards are located in Valdobbiadene, in northeastern Italy. The vines grow on hills that range in altitude from 600 to 1200 feet above sea level.

Valdo ProseccoThe Oro Puro Prosecco is a dry sparkling wine made entirely from Glera grapes. The grapes were harvested by hand, and the first fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine gets its bubbles from the Charmat method, where the second fermentation takes place in tanks rather than in the bottle.

Pale yellow in color, the Oro Puro Prosecco has citrus and floral aromas. Dry flavors of white grapefruit, pear and golden apple are enhanced by a creamy mouth-filling texture and lively bubbles.

This is a versatile sparkling wine that pairs with a variety of foods, from oysters and caviar, to white fish, salads and hors d’oeuvres. Or enjoy a glass on its own as you toast to the New Year.

$19.99, 11.5% alcohol
