If it wasn’t fancy enough that director Sarah Dei Tos has nabbed some of the best Prosecco vineyards around, she’s also now harvesting under a full moon for you. I mean, literally this translates to ‘Clusters of the Moon’. If that wasn’t enticing enough, this is superfine bubbles, that’s as exuberant as it is seriously fine. It’s not as mouthfilling as its slightly cheaper sibling, but more than makes up for that with ramped up toasty character and a finer, more persistent bead. This is your gateway bubbly to Champagne or Franciacorta, when you just want something that’s superfresh and superfine and want to super-impress, but don’t want to spend superbucks. You can also tell people about the moon and stuff, so you’re in for a treat no matter your intent.

From the producer
It is the first Prosecco born from a nocturnal harvest, with the idea of exploiting the coolest temperatures of the night to slow the fermentation process of freshly harvested grapes, in order to preserve their aromatic notes and fragrances. It is a creamy sparkling wine with an extra fine and persistent perlage. It is characterized by a straw yellow color. With a delicate scent, this Prosecco DOCG Brut delivers aromatic and even exotic fragrances, as the passion fruit. After its rich and creamy perlage, this wine presents a delicate bouquet flavor . Very persistent. Excellent wine for accompanying fish based dishes or fish tartare.
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!
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
Potato roesti with smoked salmon
- 800g royal blue potatoes, peeled
- 1/3 cup (80ml) olive oil
- 1/2-1 tsp horseradish cream, or to taste
- 100g spreadable cream cheese
- 1 bunch rocket, leaves torn
- 200g sliced smoked salmon
- 1 tbs finely chopped chives
- Coarsely grate potatoes into a sieve placed over a bowl.
- Season potatoes to taste with salt and pepper. Using your hands, squeeze out any excess moisture from grated potatoes.
- Heat 1 tbs oil in a heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Working in batches and adding more oil when needed, add heaped tablespoonfuls of potato mixture to pan, flattening to form 8cm rounds. Cook roesti for 1 1/2 minutes each side or until crisp and golden.
- Drain roesti on paper towels. Place horseradish cream and cream cheese in a bowl and stir until smooth. Divide roesti among plates. Top with rocket, smoked salmon and a spoonful of cream cheese mixture. Scatter with chives then season to taste. Serve immediately.
