Wine & Spirits 87
"The chamomile scent of chardonnay adds to the dry, nutty character of this prosecco blend. The texture is light and soft, the dry finish for fried clams."
"On the hills surrounding Conegliano, about 50 miles north of Venice, lies the beautiful estate of Bellenda. In 1987, Sergio Cosmo started this winery which is located in the very heart of the prosecco producing region while also completely replacing the vine varieties on land he already owned. The Cosmo family also re-designed the layout of the vineyard, planting 80% of the grapes now used for Prosecco and other sparkling wines with the rest used for still wines. Today, the family business is run by Umberto and Luigi Cosmo, who have a passion for making wine which marries tradition and innovation for the production of truly outstanding wines."
