Bisol Crede Prosecco Valdobbiadene Brut Superiore DOCG, Veneto
Score: 90/100 Points
“Crede” is the local Venetian ‘dialect’ word meaning ‘clay’, which is the distinctive feature of the terroir of sub-region that is Conegliano Valdobbiadene, a DOCG sub-appellation of Prosecco from Veneto, Italy that is always Superiore.
Here, the clay-rich soil traps water close to the roots of the vine, ensuring that they are never short of water. This allows the grapes to develop a rich, fine-grained acidity and delicate, floral notes.
Prosecco sparkling wines of Conegliano Valdobbiadene are considered finer that those from the more generic Prosecco DOC.
So, does this ‘Crede’ Valdobbiadene Superiore by famous winery Bisol match the rule?
Overall Tasting Notes & Impressions
This is a fine Italian Prosecco, featuring a delicate and pale lemon-yellow color, with subtle notes of hay, honeysuckle and lime to the nose.
The crisp acidity is matched by a smooth texture, while velvety phenolics provide a salivating saltiness and a slightly savory bitterness to the finish.
While all flavors are subtle and relatively restrained, they are very clean and pure, letting a sense of floral lightness come through all along the tasting experience.
Delicate yet characterful, this mineral Prosecco let’s itself enjoy with ease thanks to its lightness and finesse, yet provides an interesting sensation from relatively complex floral, citrusy, and gassy notes.
Fresh meadow, grapefruit, fresh pear or sage, on a background of freshly-squeezed lime, are among the aromas and flavors to discover in this mineral and discrete fine Prosecco.
