Conegliano-Valdobbiadene Sommariva Prosecco Superiore
This sparkling wine has a fine perlage ensuring a persistent flavor that is clean on the palate, making it an excellent wine for the table. The color is a brilliant straw-yellow, enlivened by its perlage (strands of tiny bubbles). It is characterized by rich aromas of citrus fruit and fresh herbs with pleasant touches of bread crust coming together on the palate with an exquisite, energetic taste.
Palazzo Rosso, the first part of the Palazzo Rosso di Sommariva name, means "red building" or "red palace" and is a historic epithet for the Veneto region's russet-colored earth, due to its high content of iron and other micronutrients. In the 1970's, Caterino Sommariva discovered some slopes as the optimal place for winegrowing and began purchasing hillside vineyards with his wife, Urbana. They also had great faith in the Prosecco varietal (now known by its historical name of Glera) and decided to plant it exclusively on their property, putting them in a very advantageous position when Prosecco and the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene hills began to gain recognition in the late '80s for the light, clean sparkling wine known so well today.
