Sure, it’s a mouthful to say, but these wines have a mouthful of flavor!

Prosecco Superiore wines offer complex aromas, including ripe apple, peach, jasmine, pineapple, and grapefruit. The finest wines from Cartizze and Rive vineyards often have a saline note.

There's something for everyone in Conegliano Valdobbiadene. Bone dry sparkling wines to wines with a hint of sweetness. Still wines with no bubbles. And for those who like a more funky, natural style, you'll find Sui Lieviti (a cloudy sparkling wine).
