Silvano Follador Vino Fermo Bianco 2019
- Valdobbiadene DOCG
Still prosecco. This is so freakin’ cool. A rare style of wine and certainly the first one we’ve have had at the ‘Fo. Silvano Follador is one of the most progressive, enlightened and enthralling producers of prosecco. They’ve utilised glera (the traditional prosecco variety), along with small volumes of native grapes verdiso, perera and bianchetta. The fruit is treated with biodynamic practices in the vineyard before undergoing a slow fermentation in cement tanks. After six months on lees, it’s bottled sans fizz as one of the few still proseccos in the world. It’s so pure, bright and elegant, showing citrus, minerality and even a touch of briny salinity on the finish. You’ll sense the essence of prosecco, but in something so very exciting and different.

Prosecco Superiore DOCG is the best Prosecco money can buy, grown on steep hillsides a fifth the area of the broader Prosecco DOC appellation, which is grown on the plains. The steep hills dictate more intensive vineyard care (i.e. hand everything, no machines) and it can only be grown in the Treviso province of Veneto on the hills between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. It's cooler, harsher, harder to grow and manage, all of which means it's much higher quality than the everyday quaffing Prosecco you might be used to.
