Bisol's Prosecco Range  Add/Read Comments

To conclude the Venice trip a quick over-view of the Bisol wines currently available in the UK. Head to Bibendum to purchase or look out for them in decent restaurants - the Jaio especially seems to find favour with many restaurateurs. (Bisol make a wide range of different wines, many I sampled at their Gustovino event, but these have limited distribution around the world).

Desiderio Jeio, rounded, appley, peachy, flowery-fragrant it might be but it is not actually 100% Prosecco! No, I hear you cry! Yes, says I. Along with 90% Prosecco there is 6% Pinot Bianco and 4% Verdiso. Its fresh, light and with bubbles aplenty. Lively and with a dash of sweetness to give a lovely rounded mouth feel and crowd-pleasing drinkability. Great for cocktails in addition to being a canapé accompaniment. Alcohol 11.5%.

The Crede, the work-horse Prosecco, is also a blend. Here extra Pinot Bianco (10%) and 5% Verdiso lend a more stylish edge to the wine. Still with that trademark peachy-flowery nose and apply flavours coupled with the vibrant fizz. Alcohol 11.5%. This is the wine for making those quintessential peach Bellinis although its lovely straight with or without food. Alcohol 11.5%. Vintage 2009. [Adegga / Snooth]

The Cartizze hill, the highly expensive slopes of which produce the crème of the Prosecco producers range, supplies the grapes for Bisol's Cartizze botteling (unsurprisingly). This is 100% Prosecco and the sweetest of the three. (25g per litre for the technical minded compared with 9g in the Jeio and 10g in the Crede). You have to be a little judicious when pairing with food - while it has a modicum of sweetness it isn't enough to accommodate really sweet desserts - think lighter fruit-based fare or simple biscuits. The limited production from the Cartizze hill is responsible for the high bottle price but this has to be my favourite Prosecco of the three. This is the 2009 vintage. Alcohol 11.5% [Adegga / Snooth
