Bortolomiol Prosecco Prior 2018

R260.00

This is the number one sparkling wine from the Bortolomiol traditional line. The Roman numeral on the bottle and the name Prior bear testament to the fact that Giuliano Bortolomiol had the intuition to create a brut Prosecco at a time when it was only ever an extra dry. Prior symbolises Giuliano’s pioneering spirit and his belief in Prosecco di Valdobbiadene (now Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg) and in the Martinotti Charmat sparkling wine- making method with fermentation in an autoclave, also known as the Italian Method.

Description

Following in his father’s footsteps and family tradition with a natural gift for wine making, Giuliano Bortolomiol, while still a young man, decided to enrol at the prestigious Conegliano Wine School.
In the years immediately after the Second World War, the sight of abandoned vineyards instilled in him the awareness of having a mission to share: the rebirth of the vineyards and above all the determination to enhance Prosecco in both quality and renown terms.

His dream was to elevate Prosecco from a local product without great expectations to a prestigious sparkling wine known throughout the world.
