The Fasoli brothers have championed organic viticulture for many years and have helped other small farmers to convert to organic methods. As their business has developed they have bought in organic grapes both to boost production and to develop new products like their stylish and beautifully presented Prosecco Frizzante, the latest addition to their ‘Corte del Pozzo’ range.
Vineyard size 20 hectares. Organic since 1990.

The remarkable flavour of this wine is down to a slow and careful process involving the grapes being hung up to dry for 5-6 months before being gently pressed to release the precious nectar. That’s followed by a slow fementation period and a further 2 years aging in barriques prior to release. The result is a deeply complex and rewarding bottle, full of dried fruit and bitter almonds, but with underlying spicy, vanilla notes and a terrific finish that lingers for some time. This is a dessert wine that can stand up to chocolate – not the easiest of partnerships normally – but it’s also sensational with blue cheese, so just the thing for your premium Gorgonzola…
