La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco DOC Treviso Spumante Il FrescoLa Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso is a reason to celebrate throughout the year with a little bubbly. La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. is an elegant and delicious brut sparkling wine from Treviso Italy that is made with love, and is perfect as an aperitif as well as in the culinary recipes: Luxury Experience - Scallops with Strawberry Prosecco Orange Jalapeno Chutney and Luxury Experience - Strawberry Prosecco Mousse with Strawberry Prosecco Orange Jalapeno Chutney and Strawberry Prosecco "Soup." Salut!

 

La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco DOC Treviso"La Gioiosa represents the tradition of winemaking, which the Moretti Polegato family has been carrying out for three generations, and it is in perfect symbiosis with the land of Prosecco and the Montello and Piave wines. The very name pays tribute to the old definition of the province of Treviso. Marca Gioiosa et Amorosa (the name means joyful and amorous march) underlines the sociable lifestyle of its inhabitants."

Prosecco, the most famous of Italy's sparkling wines, is made using the Charmat or tank method where secondary fermentation is done in large steel tanks, versus in the bottle (traditional method), which keeps the wine under pressure to capture the fruitiness without the yeastiness associated with sparkling wines using the traditional method.

In 2009, the Prosecco Consortium was granted a coveted D.O.C. status which denotes that the wine was produced in one of the nine provinces of Northeastern Italy (Treviso, Venice, Vicenza, Padua, Belluna, Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste, and Udine.)

Tasting Notes: La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso is made from 100% glera grapes, an indigenous white grape of the North East of Italy, known since Roman times. In the glass, the prosecco is a beautiful pale straw color with small, lively bubbles, fruity aromas of apple and pear on the nose with hints of floral that follow through on the palate for an elegant, soft and well-balanced finish. While perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to seafood courses, we also love to serve Prosecco with the dessert course.

Having lower alcohol content than most white wines which can range from 11 - 13% alcohol by volume La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso is perfect for life's everyday celebrations, and also for when you are looking for a lower alcohol choice without sacrificing flavor and taste.

To show the versatility of La Gioiosa Et Amorosa Prosecco D.O.C. Treviso, "Luxury Experience was In the Kitchen and Behind the Bar®," and created a 2-course culinary tasting menu to tempt your palate. All culinary recipes created by Luxury Experience's Chef Debra C. Argen.
