Sub-region: Prosecco di Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore Rive
Grape(s): Glera 100%
The creation of the Prosecco Superiore di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene DOCG in 2009 and, subsequently, the official identification of 43 hillside sites or ‘Rive’ in 2019 has led to a surge in Prosecco quality...to accompany this wine’s surge in global popularity. Our judges found much to like from this region this year, as a glance at the Gold and Platinum medals will show, and it was in the end a wine from those distinctive and challenging Trevisano hills, and specifically the Rive of Vidor, which won its place in our top 50 Best In Show selection. You’ll find plenty of classically floral charm in its aromas but not just that; there’s a multi-faceted spring-leaf freshness, too, which brings the wine extra depth and impact. It’s made in the Extra Dry style preferred locally, so the palate is rounded and toothsome -- but very pure, remaining fresh, graceful and scented until you’ve drained and swallowed the last drop.
