We are in the golden age of Prosecco wines as the focus has shifted to quality rather than bulk production thanks to producers like Duca di Dolle. Here this family estate produces an anomaly for the region, Pinot Nero Prosecco. Intoxicating aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberry gelée and wet stones leap from the glass. The bubbles are compact, forming an elegant mousse over a juicy, slightly creamy texture. The finish is crisp and refreshing leaving behind hints of chalk.
Duca di Dolle is located in Rolle, a tiny hamlet in the heart of the Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. hills of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene. A monastery since the 16th century, and already a center of wine production, it now extends over 75 hectares of vineyards, woods, meadows and pastures. In 2011, Duca di Dolle was purchased by the Baccini family who, coming from the world of Research and Development, immediately decided to focus on innovation, product quality and environmental sustainability.
