Style: Sparkling Wine
ABV: 11.5 %
Varietals: 100% Glera
WHY BE CURIOUS: The flagship wine of Alice, and the wine that got us excited about Prosecco again. Single-vineyard, native yeast, extended time with lees and no dosage make ‘Doro’ a principled and pure expression of Glera from Valdobbiadene..
WHO: Cinzia Canzian, a long time proponent of organic vineyard management and champion of the local varieties and wine traditions of her home region.
WHERE: In the northern part of the Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zone, near Vittorio Veneto. Soils are of glacial moraine origin: chalky, rocky, lean, and full of minerals.
TASTING NOTE: Mineral laden, refreshingly dry, fine and continuous bubbles.
PAIRING IDEAS: You know the mantra at KellySOMM, a well make bottle of bubbles literally goes with everything and anything, anytime. Salty, fried foods are always a win! Or richer foods, where dry bubbles can cut through to leave your palate refreshed ready for the next bite.
ANNUAL PRODUCTION: 1700 cases.
