    Winemaker Notes

    An elegant and pleasant sparkling wine with a light golden straw color, delicate nose and fresh crisp taste of green apple. Its slightly sweet nature is balanced by moderate acidity and light bubbles.

    Geographically, Prosecco is associated with the hills in the Northern region of Italy known as the Veneto region. The unique soils and micro- climates of the area are perfect for cultivating the Prosecco grape.

    This wine was produced using the charmat method, in which secondary fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to guarantee a cleaner finish. Prosecco serves as an increasingly popular alternative to Champagne and is Italy's answer to refreshing, well-made sparkling wine at a reasonable price.

    Armando De Zan, owner of Candoni wines, created Carletto to honor his beloved uncle. A Cavaliere del Lavoro, or "Commander of the Order for Merit Recognition", Uncle Carletto was an Italian agronomist known for his outstanding viticultural work uncovering the most authentic Italian native varietals. Armando features these traditions and varietals in his lineup of wines sourced from Italy's most important wine regions.

    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.

    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.
