    Winemaker Notes

    Benvolio Prosecco is an excellent expression of both the variety and the Friuli terroir. This wine is a sharp golden straw color with bubbles that are finely textured and persistent. The nose shows fresh citrus with slight hints of honey and fresh flowers. Vibrant on the palate, the crisp acidity acts as a counterpoint to the flavors of ripe citrus, fresh peaches, lemon, green apples and grapefruit. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.

    Benvolio Prosecco is delightful when served on its own. It is also delicious with fish, shellfish, chicken and white meat dishes. Best served chilled

    Benvolio, Prosecco, Italy
    There is no place on Earth that cherishes the inseparable relationship between food and wine like Italy. So it was only natural to challenge our local winemakers with the task of sourcing wines that reflect their unique, authentic terroir while possessing outstanding food-pairing ability. The result is Benvolio.

    Benvolio is made from grapes grown by our farmers, friends and neighbors in Friuli, a wine that displays true regional fl avor and has a distinctive personality. Our local winemakers spend much of their time in the allows them to select the very best grapes this unique Italian region has to offer. Benvolio means "well-wisher" in Italian. As such, it is our wish that you enjoy the unmistakable flavors our winemakers have selected for you.

    Prosecco

    One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the more rugged terrain between the towns of Valdobiaddene and Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character makes it seem a bit sweeter than it actually is. “Extra brut” styles, incorporating higher levels of residual sugar, are quite popular, however.

    Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process (also called the tank method) means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.

    Non-Vintage

    A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

    There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
