From: Valdobbiadene, Prosecco, Italy
Blend: 90% Glera, 5% Bianchetta, 5% Perera
Taste & Critical Acclaim: Produced almost entirely by hand, the sparkling wines of Andreola are among the finest examples of Prosecco. Planted on the steeply terraced rolling hills of Valdobbiadene, this artisanal producer boasts a wide selection of wines, each with its own singular personality. Luminous and fresh, this dry, lively Prosecco delivers plenty of minerality, fresh acidity, and a delightfully frothy perlage. White flowers, lemon citrus, green apples, and peach aromas jump out of the glass, and its crisp, clean finish will have you reaching for another glass in no time.

Dry and linear, this radiant sparkler has aromas and flavors of white spring flower, green apple, pear and peach. Tangy acidity and an elegant perlage provide balance and an elegant backdrop before a crisp clean finish.

Lots of frothy energy to this with lemon-rind and green-apple character, together with an almond-paste flavor that enriches the finish. Leaves an aftertaste of marsiglia. Interesting. Drink now.
Pairing: Prosecco’s like this one, with its more mineral-driven flavor profile, fares well alongside dishes like grilled shellfish with lemon, chicken rolls, halibut or cod, roasted poultry, or spicy salami. Some other wine-pairing options include serving this next to a plate of fresh melon and prosciutto, light pasta or risottos (like the one we’re sharing below), light appetizers, fresh salads, and roasted winter squash-based dishes.

About. The passion for the vineyards and the wine is the hallmark of this family business, founded in 1984 by Nazareno Pola. It still follows its production from the vineyard to the cellar, skillfully combining ancient methods and modern technologies, the passion with reason. Today, Stefano Pola continues to manage the company with the same philosophy as his father. An evolution that led Andreola to fully understand the "character" of Prosecco Superiore DOCG, the evolution of the grape, its different adaptability to the territory and climatic diversity, and guaranteeing its customers a high-quality product and controlled at all processing stages, in full compliance with the new legal provisions on traceability.
About the DOCG. Valdobbiadene DOCG, with its fruity and floral aromas, is the most well-known and sought-after Charmat method sparkling wine in the world. Its history began three centuries ago on the hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano. Since 2009, Valdobbiadene Docg has been identified as the Denomination of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin (DOCG), the highest designation of quality for Italian wine, alongside the DOCG Asolo and DOC Prosecco, extended over 9 provinces of Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia. The production area of Valdobbiadene Docg, which extends over only 15 municipalities, is, therefore, a patch of hilly territory that represents the heart of the Prosecco Superiore world and the top of its production and quality pyramid.
Unique characteristics of a single vineyard.
Thanks to its informal and refined character, Valdobbiadene DOCG is a sparkling wine that has exported a new drinking style worldwide. It is produced exclusively on the hills of Valdobbiadene, using mainly Glera grapes and a small percentage of minor local varietals. The maximum yield permitted per hectare is 13.5 quintals, thus guaranteeing the maintenance of balance between vine, terrain, and climate. The different cuvées are obtained by a clever combination of the grapes coming from various microzones in the area, each one capable of giving the wine unique characteristics which are expressed in different levels of sweetness—Brut, Extra Dry, and Dry, from the lowest to the highest percentage of residual sugar.
