Alessandro Bortolin Prosecco Fonduel Col Fondo $26.50
This organically grown, certified sustainable Prosecco Col Fondo is unlike most other Proseccos you've encountered, which are made using the Charmat tank method. This bone-dry, yeasty, super elegant bottling is actually made using Methode Champenoise wherein the second fermentation happens in the bottle, however with Col Fondo Prosecco, the wines are not disgorged, leaving a cloudy, yeasty sediment at the bottom of the wine. Grown on 60 year old vines in Valdobbiadene, and made of 100% hand-harvested, native yeast fermented Glera, this shows a super fine mousse and lovely notes of green apple, meyer lemon and baked brioche.
