We guarantee that your first sip of Marco Collavo's 'Collfondo' will completely change your perception of Prosecco and have you head over heels in an instant. This is savoury and grown up with layers of citrus, white peach and freshly baked bread. Where other Proseccos are gone as soon as they are supped, this has a long, lingering finish, an unctuous texture and a super-fine, stylish mousse. One of the great joy's of a recent weeks Italian tasting was watching the glint in Marco's eyes as he helped customer after customer discover the joy that is this ancient-method Prosecco. So, be one of the cool kids and get ahead of the game.


Tasting Notes

It is a source of supreme bafflement that wine producers in Prosecco do not make more of their tradition of making collfondo Prosecco. It contributes a mere 1-2% of production in the region and yet it is more authentic, more traditional,more artisanal, and, some would argue, more flavoursome, than Prosecco made the industrial way. Collfondo means that the second fermentation happens in the bottle, where the yeasts remain, giving the wine an extra leesy/bready note. Collfondo is also a little less fizzy that the other kind of Prosecco (more frizzante than spumante), so it’s arguably more of a gastronomic wine.
