“Aromas of white spring flower, Bartlett pear and citrus waft out of the glass. The racy, refreshing palate is full of energy, offering crisp yellow-apple, lemon drop and orange zest flavors balanced by vibrant acidity.

“Foaming, vibrant and loaded with finesse, this radiant sparkler opens with delicate but enticing scents of fragrant spring blossom and white stone fruit. The dry elegant palate delivers Granny Smith apple, Bartlett pear and white almond alongside bright acidity and tiny, continuous bubbles. This is gorgeous offering, and one that nicely shows the incredible potential of the Valdobbiadene hills.”

“Heady aromas of green apple, wisteria and baking spice propel from the glass on this luscious sparkler. Elegant and bright, the silky palate doles out pear, white peach and lemon drop, while a creamy mousse provides finesse. Bright acidity lifts the rich flavors and leaves a tangy finish.”

“Here is a Prosecco Superiore that shows depth and elegance as well the denomination’s hallmark freshness. It opens with delicate enticing scents of spring wildflower, fleshy white stone fruit, wild herb and a yeasty whiff of bread dough. On the dry linear palate, a silky mousse accompanies yellow apple, pear and white peach alongside a note of white almond and a hint of ginger.”

“An outstanding expression of one of the most celebrated vineyard sites in the denomination, this wine opens with enticing scents of toasted almond, white orchard fruit, botanical herb and pressed spring flower. Elegant and focused, the bright, foaming palate delivers a great depth of flavors, including green apple, creamy white peach and lemon drop, while a soft mousse gives it a silky texture. It closes crisp, tangy and dry.”

After a ten-year nomination process, on July 7, 2019 the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic winemaking region in north-eastern Italy is the 55th Italian site to be recognized with this prestigious designation. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) seeks to “encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity.”

 

The Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene landscape is the 10th site in the world to be registered under the category of “cultural landscape.” The other sites in this category include Langhe Roero and Monferrato (Italy), Champagne (France), and Tokaj (Hungary). These evolutionary cultural landscape sites show the vital and constantly evolving interaction between man and the environment.

 

The producers of the Consortium of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG, including Nino Franco, were the driving force behind the region being recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
