2014 Corvezzo Terre di Marca Prosecco Treviso Bio Extra Dry Millesimato
This Prosecco made by Corvezzo in the Veneto region and called ‘Terre di Marca’ comes with a few adjectives:
- Millesimato: Italian for Vintage, it means the wine is made from grapes from a single year/harvest, 2014 in this instance
- Organic: or Bio as they say in Europe
- Extra-Dry: which means it’s quite dry (12 to 17 grams per litre of sugar), but not as dry as a Brut would be
- Treviso: which means it’s produced under the Prosecco DOC of north-eastern Italy, specifically from vineyards within the Treviso province of Veneto.
But how good is this wine?
The answer is in the tasting notes:
Nose: fresh and mineral, abundance of green peep fruits, like an orchard in a misty morning: green apple and pear. The orchard’s flowery too with marked yet subtle floral character. Slightly waxy (almond milk) and acacia honey.
Palate: quite light in body. Good sharp acidity with a touch of sweetness, although it feels dry overall. Balanced and refreshing. Apple and lemon flavors accentuate the freshness of the mouthfeel. Long grassy finish, with honey and waxy aromas lingering festively on your palate for a while. Small bubbles popping softly on the tongue.
Overall: a beautifully delicate Prosecco, all about nuances of subtle orchard flavors and honey. Quite long, balanced.
I can see how this could be a perfect accompaniment for a festive aperitivo pleasing guests with refreshing yet elaborate sensations
It will go just as well with charcuterie and mild cheeses as with sea fruit delicate entrées (let the mind run free and tell you which dishes naturally come to mind as a great match: herb prawns, shallots & vinegar-dressed oysters, or sherry butter scallops).
