Bisol Prosecco’s sense of bubbles
Bisol is a renowned Prosecco producer, but it would reductive to limit this winery’s fame just to the Veneto’s well-known spumante sparkling wine. The family have bubbles in their veins, and the recent tasting with Desiderio Bisol (in the picture) confirmed this vocation: from Prosecco DOC to the Valdobbiadene DOCG wines, including a sulphite-free wine and a Cartizze without dosage, all wines with character, for any occasion or taste.
However the biggest thrills come from the traditional method wines: a 2002 without dosage, spicy with intense notes of confectioner’s custard, and the Cuvée del Fondatore 2000, disgorged in 2013, with hints of spice, ground liquorice, creamy and enveloping on the palate. Number one.
Remember that Bisol is also a leader in Venice with the unique Venissa vineyard, where, on an enchanting and remote island of the lagoon, a few bottles of Dorona are made with an ancient variety grown on a hectare of vineyard. The half-litre bottle is precious, covered in gold, sold at €45 at first and quickly reaching a value of 100-150 euros. The nose is unique for its intense notes of apricots and spice, the finish is aristocratic with a touch of ash and salt.
