Bisol "Crede" Vintage 2016 Prosecco Superiore

Description

This wine is made from Glera, Veradiso and Pino Bianco grapes grown on the steep hills of the Bisol Vineyards (85% Glera, 10% Pinot Bianco, 5% Verdiso (made from 100% estate fruit)). The first two varieties enjoy an ideal habitat in the clay-laden earth with subsoil of marine sandstone known as "crede" that is common to this part of the countryside. This type of terrain is particular and beneficial to the grapes, which do not suffer from aridity during critical periods but instead become notably enriched with noble acids, varietal aromas and fruitiness.


The color is a brilliant, light straw yellow with nuances of green, while perlage features a myriad of minute and persistent bubbles. The bouquet of wildflowers is suitably intense, fresh and elegant and emanates an extremely agreeable fruitiness. The flavor reflects the fruity bouquet with its scents of apples and pears and the overall harmony is completed by a rich and fine sapidity.

"Crisp aromas and flavors of green apple, nectarine and jasmine have a noteworthy mineral edge. Finishes long and bright, with memorable focus and purity. Delightful Prosecco Brut; I have long believed Crede to be one of the best Brut Proseccos made by anyone. Interestingly it is not 100% Glera but mixes in a touch of Pinot Bianco and of Perera." Ian D'Agata

"Scents of fragrant field flowers and white orchard fruit emerge on this refreshing sparkling wine. The vibrant, silky palate delivers crisp green apple, juicy pear and lime alongside tangy acidity and a refined, persistent bead. The finish is dry and clean." Wine Enthusiast (92 Points for the 2014 vintage)
