Buy Benvolio Prosecco
Benvolio Prosecco is an excellent expression of both the variety and the Friuli terroir. This wine is a sharp golden straw color with bubbles that are finely textured and persistent. The nose shows fresh citrus with slight hints of honey and fresh flowers. Vibrant on the palate, the crisp acidity acts as a counterpoint to the flavors of ripe citrus, fresh peaches, lemon, green apples and grapefruit. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.

Wine maker notes
The grapes for the Benvolio Prosecco are estate-grown in the heart of the province of Friuli in northeastern Italy. Our Prosecco is made from 100% Glera grapes whose native origins are in the village of Prosecco 35 kilometers to the east of the Benvolio vineyards. Our vineyard sites are on what thousands of years ago was a broad river plain, which now has soils of gravel and sand that stress the vines and provide exceptional drainage. The grapes produced in this environment are very full flavored. The nights are cooled by the breezes from the Adriatic Sea, giving higher acidity to the wine, balancing the natural sugars of the Glera grape for a well-balanced Prosecco. In the winery, we crush the grapes and immediately pass the juice to cool fermenters. The fermentation process lasts for several weeks in controlled-temperature stainless steel tanks which preserve the delicate fruit flavors expressed in the juice. The finished wine is then passed to stainless steel vessels for the Charmat Sparkling wine method, which is done under controlled pressure for 45 to 60 days. The secondary fermentation is induced with selected yeasts and sugars, giving the finished wine the unique flavors of the Benvolio Prosecco.

Food pairing
Benvolio Prosecco is delightful when served on its own. It is also delicious with fish, shellfish, chicken and white meat dishes. Best served chilled between 45 - 50oF.

There is no place on Earth that cherishes the inseparable relationship between food and wine like Italy. So it was only natural we rise to the challenge of sourcing wines that reflect our unique, authentic terroir while possessing outstanding food-pairing ability. Benvolio means ”well-wisher” in Italian. As such, it is our wish that you enjoy the unmistakable flavors our winemakers have selected for you.
