Bisol Jeio Prosecco Superiore
The Jeio Prosecco Superiore NV has bright aromas of fresh green apple, with notes of citrus fruit, peach, apricot, and banana. White flowers and vegetal notes of freshly cut grass complement the spicy finish. Dry with a consistent body, this wine is elegant, fresh, and crispy, but not light.

Creamy, racy and fun, this offers inviting aromas of green apple, wisteria and aromatic herb. The vibrant palate delivers Bartlett ear, citrus and thyme accompanied by an elegant, continuous mousse. It has a crisp, dry close. Wilson Daniels Ltd. Editors’ Choice
Since 1542, the Bisol family has produced a range of sustainably farmed and internationally recognized Prosecco Superiore DOCG in the heart of Valdobbiadene. All bottlings are expressions of terroir, including the famed ‘Cartizze, the ‘Grand Cru’ of Prosecco, from their own vineyards. Today, Giancluca Bisol has assumed the role of President and CEO while his brother, Desiderio, holds the position of chief enologist and technical director.
The steepest hills with the best soils and exposition, Valdobbiadene (also called Conegliano Valdobbiadene) is the historic area covering 15 municipalities between the two villages of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. Collectively it is recognized as the Prosecco Superiore DOCG. This very small area—only 7,000 hectares—of extreme terrain is in the heart of the larger Prosecco zone.
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.
