But how do you navigate through our wide selection of Prosecco DOCG to find the perfect Italian sparkling wine to complement your unique palate? Fear not, we have the Ultimate Prosecco DOCG Guide to help you to choose the perfect bottle of Prosecco DOCG just for you. 

Ultimate Prosecco Guide

The first question you have to honestly answer is: "What sparkling wine do you usually prefer?" 
And don't worry if the answer is champagne, we get it as the current Prosecco offer in the UK is limited, but we have the perfect fizz for you as well! The 20.10 collection from Le Manzane is the best match for those of you, who normally opt for champagne. If you like dry wine, the best Prosecco for your palate is Prosecco Superiore 20.10 Brut, if you prefer sweeter wine, your match is Prosecco Superiore 20.10 Extra Dry.

Note: Are you confused by suggestion of Brut for a dry palate? Here's the reason: Classification groups of Prosecco Spumante according to residual sugar content are: Extra Brut, Brut, Extra Dry, Dry. Prosecco Dry is the sweetest kind of Prosecco, Prosecco Extra Brut is the driest. These are the numbers used for classification:
Extra Brut - 0 - 6 g/l
Brut - 0 - 12 g/l
Extra Dry - 12 - 17 g/l
Dry - 17 - 32 g/l 

Now let's back to Prosecco lovers! If your answer to your favourite fizz is Prosecco, let's find the best Prosecco DOCG for you! 
The next question is if you prefer dry wines to sweet wines. If sweeter is your preference, you will enjoy Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry with its pear and apple notes or more floral and spicy Conegliano Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry. For the sweeter tooth we also recommend Prosecco Springo Bronze Rive and Prosecco Springo Gold di Cartizze, however these two Prosecco types are equivalent to Cru and their fullness and complexity are very special and will also appeal to those, who usually prefer dry wine.

Sweet is not your treat? That's ok. We have the perfect Prosecco DOCG also for you! Dry Prosecco is usually well balanced between fruity and floral, however the fresh citrusy and crispy taste are the main characteristics of Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut and Prosecco DOCG Nebbia Rive Brut from Vedova. On the other hand Conegliano Prosecco Superiore Brut and Prosecco Springo Green (Prosecco col Fondo) offer hints of bread crusts and creamy consistence. Last but not least, Prosecco Springo Blue Rive Extra Brut is the most elegant, softly-countered and finessed Prosecco you will ever try.

Enjoy your fizz journey, discover the subtle notes, enchanting aromas, and luscious flavors that will make your taste buds dance with joy and let us know what Prosecco DOCG is your favourite!

Cheers to your perfect Prosecco DOCG!

Stay fizzy, happy & healthy!
