Asolo Prosecco, the Denomination you (maybe) don’t know

Prosecco Asolo is a unique expression of wine, which determines a market niche often associated with high-level products. Let’s discover it.

The History of Asolo Prosecco

The production area of ​​Asolo Prosecco has ancient oenological roots. Vines and viticulture have been present in the Asolo hills and Montello since the year one thousand thanks to the work of the Benedictine monks.
The monks strongly influenced the agricultural and winemaking tradition of the area, which saw a moment of strong expansion and fame when this area passed to Venice. The beauty of the hills and the charm of the wine of these territories enchanted the Venetian nobility who built wonderful villas and “barchesse” houses here. Asolo wine became so famous that in that time in Venice it was compared with the Greek wines and began to be exported abroad as early as 1400.

The Denomination Asolo Prosecco – Colli Asolani Prosecco

The wine that today we know as Asolo Prosecco, has been the subject of protection since 1977 with the recognition of the DOC “Montello e Colli Asolani”. Over the years, Prosecco Asolo has received more and more recognition in various countries in and outside Europe, thanks to its high quality standard and strong link with the territory. In 2009, the Ministry recognized the high value of this unique wine and thus assigned the new DOCG “Colli Asolani Prosecco” or “Asolo Prosecco”.

Wine and Terroir

The Asolo Prosecco DOCG wines are produced from grapes grown exclusively in 19 municipalities around Asolo and are divided into the following categories: DOCG Asolo Prosecco, DOCG Asolo Prosecco “frizzante” and DOCG Asolo Prosecco “Spumante Superiore”. They are produced from Glera grapes to which Verdiso, Bianchetta trevigiana, Perera and Glera Lunga grapes can contribute, as per regulations, up to a maximum of 15%.
These grapes are grown in a varied territory of hills and plains, where nature has remained intact in its rich biodiversity. What makes the aromatic profile of Prosecco Asolo unique, in fact, is the territory where its grapes grow, in the company of crops of gastronomic excellence such as the Montello Potato, the Monfumo Apples, the Cherry of the Asolo Hills, the Borlotto Nano Bean of Levada and Montello Honey.
