Giusti Asolo Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut NV
- Crisp, fine
- Prosecco DOC
A well-balanced, fresh and fruity sparkling, this vino comes with notes of lemons and apples and is a guaranteed winner once the warmer months roll round. It comes from a really exciting producer and fun fact, the property was used as a military base during WWII and the wells in which machine guns were hidden still remain. And to be fair, if they keep churning out quality prosecco like this, it may take a fortress to keep thirsty prosecco-lovers out of the building.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

This Prosecco with controlled and guaranteed designation of origin is made with the best Glera grapes coming from vineyards located in the Veneto region in the hilly area of Montello and the Asolo hills, in the municipality of Nervesa della Battaglia and more specifically in the vineyards of the ARIA VALENTINA, ABBAZIA and SIENNA estates, located on the southern slopes of the Montello.
Did you know that Prosecco is the only region that has as grape named after it? Or was it the other way round... well, here's fun fact number two anyway: the prosecco grape is also known as glera! So don't glera't me if I got anything wrong here, I'm too busy busting out the bellissimo bubbles!
