Villa Marcello, E.G.O Prosecco Brut Dosage Zero

Villa Marcello

2018
Veneto IGT
This is a new product from the Villa Marcello estate: a top Prosecco Brut with zero sugar added.

A new addition to our sparkling wine range.

It's an elegant, refined vintage wine with 'zero dosage' or no added sugar which makes it light and fresh, yet sophisticated. A fantastic blend of Glera and Chardonnay grapes.

It can be enjoyed on its own or with canapes.

The E.G.O. cuvée is dedicated to the Contessa Elisabetta Galvani Onigo; her initials E.G.O. are still displayed in many houses of the property.

She was a pioneer that at the beginning of the XIX Century understood the potential of the Prosecco area, starting the conversion from hunting forest areas to vineyards.

Veneto

Veneto is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the north-eastern corner of Italy.

Just east of the lake and north of Verona is Valpolicella wine appellation: the fabled ‘Valley of Many Cellars&rsquo. Immediately east of Valpolicella is Soave, home to the eponymous dry white wine which now ranks among Italy’s most famous products. In the north-eastern corner of the region, on either side of the Piave river sparkling wine Prosecco reigns supreme.

DOCG and DOC

Veneto produces four DOCGs wines – Amazon della Valpolicella, Prosecco di Valdobbiadene,Recioto di Soave,Bardolino – of the several DOCs we find Soave, Valpolicella,Bianco di Custoza and Treviso among others.

Grape Varieties

Garganega, Trebbiano and Glera are the key white-wine grape varieties here, while Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella are behind the vast majority of reds. International varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc,and even Carmenere have proved successful here, as has northern Italy’s flagship white Pinot Grigio.
