N.V. Prosecco Superiore Brut MAGNUM

Sommariva

N.V. Prosecco Superiore Brut MAGNUM Sommariva - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Cinzia Sommariva’s Prosecco, hailing from the heart of the Prosecco zone near the town of Conegliano, is an obvious choice when looking for a wine for a celebration, or simply to enliven the senses. And while Prosecco maybe be very easy to drink, by no means is it easy to make. Cinzia and her parents farm thirty-five hectares of Glera, the Prosecco grape, in these gentle hills that lead into the towering Dolomites to the north. At Sommariva, the objective is quality, even if it means putting in extra effort, such as working sustainably in the vineyards and choosing to harvest by hand. While there is no doubt that Cinzia’s wine tastes great as an aperitivo or with a light antipasto, try drinking it over the course of an entire meal—like a true veneziano—to experience its remarkable versatility! –Anthony Lynch

About Veneto

Italy’s most prolific wine region by volume, the Veneto is the source of some of the country’s most notorious plonk: you’ll find oceans of insipid Pinot Grigo, thin Bardolino, and, of course, the ubiquitous Prosecco. And yet, the Veneto produces the highest proportion of DOC wine of any Italian region: home to prestigious appellations like Valpolicella, Amarone, and Soave, it is capable of excelling in all three colors, with equally great potential in the bubbly and dessert departments.

With almost 200,000 acres planted, the Veneto has a wealth of terroirs split between the Po Valley and the foothills of the Alps. While the rich soils of the flatlands are conducive to mechanization, high yields, and mass production of bulk wine, the areas to the north offer a fresher climate and a diversity of poor soil types, ideal for food-friendly wines that show a sense of place. Whether it’s a charming Prosecco Superiore from the Glera grape, a stony Soave or Gambellara from Garganega, or a Corvina-based red in any style, the Veneto’s indigenous grape varieties show real character when worked via traditional production methods.

Since his first visit in 1979, Kermit has regularly returned to the Veneto to enjoy its richness of fine wines and local cuisine. Our collaboration with Corte Gardoni, our longest-running Italian import, is a testament to this. The proximity of beautiful cities like Verona and Venice, with their deep culinary heritage, certainly doesn’t hurt, either.
