See here for a review of the Quartese and a mention of the differences of higher-quality Prosecco.
Ruggeri, established by Giustino Bisol in 1950, is now run by his son, Paolo, and grandchildren Giustino and Isabella. This winery’s collection of Proseccos – many bottled as top-quality Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG – are among the finest to be found in the region.
And don’t be misled: Ruggeri may only have been established in 1950 (and it moved to its current home in Valdobbiadene as recently as the early 1990s), but this is a family synonymous with the history of the region. The place name ‘Case Bisoi’ – houses of the Bisols – is found on the area’s oldest maps, and the family has been cultivating grapes here for centuries.
This Prosecco is slightly greenish, brilliant and streaked with a persistent perlage of minute bubbles. The bouquet is fruity and intense, yet elegant. Clear scents of golden apples come through a floral background. It is dry wine, fresh and lean, soft and rounded, with good length and pleasantly fruity finish.
Traditionally served as an aperitif, this Brut Prosecco is also ideal with fish and shellfish.
We like this because it is a seriously classy, high-quality Prosecco at a tremendous price. It's a Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore, and most definitely not your average supermarket fare. If Champagne is not for you, this is a Prosecco you can serve with pride, while die-hard Prosecco fans will love the extra flavour.
