If the better known sparkling and semi-sparkling versions sing with vivacity and high spirits, the Prosecco Doc Tranquillo (still) offers a different kind of pleasure, more reflective and delicate. Its song is a Canto Fermo, a still song. Alongside his irresistible brother, famous for his bubbles, here is the traditional Veneto still Prosecco Doc for those who appreciate tastes that remain unaltered over time, far from life’s constant changes. It is as genuine as the people from the Valdobbiadene hillsides.
In contrast with the sparkling and semisparkling versions, Prosecco Tranquillo has no carbon dioxide or residual sugars and therefore must shine for its qualities alone. To be sure of its quality the maturation and selection of the grapes must be perfect. This is the only way to produce a noteworthy still Prosecco and Canto Fermo is truly that. The fragrance is fruity and fine, it’s tasty and fresh in the mouth developing a nice tension. Perfect with all kinds of fish, above all more delicate dishes.
