Lot 738 Italian Prosecco comes to us from beautiful hillside vineyards in Valdobbiadene, a little growing region in northeastern Italy that produces the finest Prosecco grapes in the world (thanks to a unique microclimate and some very talented growers). This is cream of the crop, first-class Prosecco that you are going to love popping bottle after bottle on any occasion. A brut-styled spumante from a top-of-the-line winery, it also picked up a Gold Medal and 92 pt score from IWSC under its original label.
This Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG is a recent award-winner and top-reviewed Cameron Hughes Wine, too! Most recently it took home the Gold Medal and was awarded 93 Points in the 2023 San Diego Wine Challenge
Pouring a crystalline pale straw color with very active tiny bubbles in this Prosecco, the nose greets you with green apple, pear, and fresh peeled lemon rinds. The entry is very active, with melon and apples lifting up gardenias and honey alongside perfect acidity. The dry finish starts with a fresh cream note, leading into aromatic lemon oils and citrus blossoms. Besides being a fantastic aperitif (or the foundation for an apex mimosa), this is also an awesome food pairing with everything from charcuterie boards and raw shellfish to spicy Asian dishes or fried chicken.
Watch as Chris Lafleur, Sommeliers Creed for Cameron Hughes walks us through a tasting pf this Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG.
