DOC Prosecco: Raphael Dal Bo 'Raffaello' Extra Dry
From the heart of the Veneto, Raphael dal Bo's Prosecco has been a favourite of the pubs and bars we supply for many years. Made from the Glera grape, this traditional 'Extra Dry' bottling is a mere 11% ABV and has apple blossom and citrus peel aromas, a delicate mousse and a ripe orchard fruit finish.
Made using the Charmat method (with secondary fermentation in tank rather than bottle), this 'Extra Dry' bottling of Prosecco has 12 to 17g. per Litre dosage, giving a rounded, soft texture and lighter ABV. It should be served at around 6 to 8 degrees C.
|Style||White Wine, Sec, Light-bodied, Sparkling|
|Grape Variety (Cépage)||Glera|
|Food & Wine Matching||Charcuterie, Chicken and Turkey, White Fish|
|Cellarage||This non-vintage Prosecco is bottled for immediate consumption - drink on its youthful fruit.|
|Vinification||A base wine is fermented before a 'liqueur de tirage' comprising sugar and yeast is added for a secondary fermentation which takes place in pressurised tanks. The dosage is added before bottling. Slightly lower in pressure than méthode champenoise sparkling wine, Prosecco bottles are a little lighter weight as the glass does not need to be as thick and strong.|
