Prosecco

prosecco-valdobbiadene

Prosecco is among the most consumed bubbles in Italy and in the world.

Perfect as an aperitif, it also goes very well with fresh and appetizing dishes, so much so that some people don’t disdain it with desserts! In summer, then, it is a real delight.

But how was born?

What are its origins and why is it called like that?

The origins of the name: everything starts from a county in Friuli Venezia Giulia.

It seems they date back to the end of the 1500s, when for the first time sparkling wine was given this appellative.

In particular, the definition was given to the castellum nobile vino Pucinum, identified with the castle of Prosecco, a town in Friuli region in the province of Trieste.

End of the 1700’s and beginning of the 1800’s

Afterwards, between the end of the 1700’s and the beginning of the 1800’s, the vine spread from the Friuli area to the hills of Veneto.

A curiosity: the term “Prosecco” as we know it referred to wine.

It appears for the first time in this period, in 1754, in a poem, “Il Roccolo Ditirambo”, written by Valeriano Canati.

The first Prosecco in a bottle: the one made by Carpené-Malvolti At the beginning of the 1800’s Francesco Maria Malvolti.

He was a viticulturist interested in the development of sparkling wines, already pointed out in a speech at the Academy of Conegliano “how interesting and exquisite their Prosecchi were”.
