Description

Prosecco typically involves the primary fermentation in tank, followed by a secondary ferment also in tank, retaining the carbon dioxide giving bubbles to the wine. This Col Fondo, a term reserved specifically for Prosecco’s is where the secondary ferment is in bottle and the wine is not disgorged, that is, the lees are left inside the bottle. Like a Pet-Nat, which are all the rage with the youth. The resulting wine can be a bit cloudy and a little more acidic than typical Prosecco.

Smells

aromas of ripe pears, cider, mead, dried hay, white pepper, honeysuckle and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Tastes

My first Col fondo and its definitely an interesting style. A rich palate with a creamy mousse and a piquant, bittersweet finish that intrigues. Mead flavours persist on the palate with baked apples and cider notes. A very dry style that seems completely opposite in style to most Prosecco. A wine for hip individuals who love the Natural wine movement and willing to try something new and different. Serve with dry roasted almonds and cured meats. Serve blind to your friends, they will never guess this wine……
