In Miami, we have a reputation for being flashy, so this gold bottle of Bottega Gold Prosecco fits right in—especially just in time for New Year’s. The dazzling packaging was inspired by the gold tiles that decorate the St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Italy.
Bottega has a rich history, over four centuries old, in the world of wine and grappa. It all started in the 17th century, when Bottega “forefather”, Andrea cultivated the vine in one of the world’s most beautiful places: the hills near Molinetto della Croda in Refrontolo. Bottega were originally tenant farmers for the Counts of Collalto, but they managed to gain their freedom and started farming their own lands. Now, Bottega wines and liquors have received 280 prizes and awards and can be found in 132 countries around the world.
Bottega Gold is a Prosecco DOC, obtained by the vinification of Glera grapes. The area of cultivation of Glera grapes is located nearby in the Veneto Pre-Alps.
The wine is straw yellow and has small and persistent bubbles. On the nose, it’s fresh and floral with notes of pear and apple. It’s light on the mouth with nice acidity. A nice sparkling sipper. You can find it online for $29.99. Cheers!
