Stellina di Notte Prosecco is a fun, affordable sparkling wine with delicate aromas of citrus, pear, melon, lemon and almonds. Elegant bubbles enliven the flavors, making them dance on the palate. The body is light, with a lovely balance between crisp acidity and a touch of sweetness. The hint of minerals in the finish is a classic quality of the Prosecco grape, which has been grown in the Tre Venezie region of Northern Italy since Roman times. Venetians consider Prosecco the perfect aperitivo or ombra (pick-me-up) and often pair it with calamari, seafood salads and light pasta dishes. Pop the cork on Stellina di Notte Prosecco to make any event a celebration!
Wine maker notes
We hand harvested the Prosecco grapes from vineyards in the foothills of the Alps, in Italy’s northern Veneto region. This cool viticulture region forms an arc between the Italian Alps and the Adriatic Sea. The region’s high altitudes assure cool summers to retain the grape acidity that gives liveliness to sparkling wines, while warmth from its proximity to the Adriatic Sea assures full ripening. The Guyot-trained vines are deeply rooted in well-draining alluvial marl soils—-composed of clay, limestone and rock—that are believed to contribute to the unique minerality of Prosecco wines. We made our Prosecco using the Charmat sparkling wine process. First we cold fermented the juice to preserve the grapes’ fruitiness and then kept the wine sur lie (on yeast) for three weeks with frequent batonnage (stirring) for rich texture on the palate. A second fermentation, with sur lie aging, developed the wine’s aromas and fine, persistent bubbles.

Food pairing
Mix our Prosecco with fresh peach juice to make Venice’s famous bellini cocktail. Serve well chilled and point the bottle away from you when popping the cork.

Producer
Stellina di Notte®, “little night star,” produces enticing Italian wines–Pinot Grigio, Chianti and Prosecco. The Pinot Grigio comes from appellation Tre Venezie–referring to the three regions: Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino Alto Adige in northeast Italy, the most famous appellation for this spicy, minerally white grape. Sangiovese grapes for the Stellina di Notte Chianti are harvested from vineyards in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Romanticists will tell you that Italy’s beautiful, starry night skies are the perfect setting for sipping these delicious wines, hence the celestial name.
