SENIOR

 

Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G.
Extra Dry – Millesimato

 

The Senior is the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg par excellence. Its Latin name is as clear to everyone around the world as the name Prosecco. For some and for a long time the sparkling Prosecco couldn’t be anything more than extra dry for its natural sweetness and sugar residue. Now that Bortolomiol have four versions of Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg in their traditional line, the number “II” on the capsule signifies that this is the second on the scale between the driest and softest. It’s called Senior because it was the first.


Its finely balanced sugar residue and embracing fragrances give this wine softness and great adaptability. This is a wine for all occasions, from a drink at the bar with friends to an aperitif. But it is in the kitchen that it really shines. Perfect with vegetable soups and fried sheep’s brain, where on the one hand the sugar residue matches the sweetness of the dish and on the other the freshness and well-controlled mousse balances the fatty flavors.
