Emilio Fidora, Prosecco Frizzante Il Fondo

Price
€13,50

This Prosecco is slightly different from most. Emilio has chosen not to filter the Prosecco - there is still a layer of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. A Prosecco like this is therefore called Prosecco Col Fondo, which means 'with the bottom' - referring to the layer of yeast.

A Col Fondo, is often a bit drier than the standard filtered Prosecco and has a funky edge. But above all, this Prosecco for super fresh and fruity. Before drinking you can tilt the bottle a few times to mix the layer with the wine, but Emilio himself advises not to do so.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
