The Fili Prosecco Brut is a fruity sparkling wine in a unique bottle shape commissioned by the founder and owner of Sacchetto Vini, Filiberto, who is also the wine’s namesake. Prosecco is an Italian white wine made with grapes known as Glera. Italy holds some of the oldest winemaking locations in the world and is globally renowned for its great wines. The Fili Prosecco Brut is one of Sacchetto Vini’s most awarded wines. It is stylish and energising in exterior design as well as taste, making it ideal for celebrations and other happy occasions. Sacchetto Fili Prosecco has won a commendation in the 2015 Decanter World Wine Awards, a bronze placement in the 2015 Sommelier Wine Awards, and a bronze placement in the International Wine Challenge 2015 2nd Tranche.
The grapes for Fili Prosecco are de-stalked and gently pressed, then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 18-20 degrees Celsius. Later, the Fili Prosecco wine is blended and re-fermented in pressurized tanks, with the addition of local yeasts for “prise de mousse,” or the creation of foam and effervescence. This requires perfect temperature control for the best results of fine bubbles. Yeasts feed on the residual sugars in the wine and produce carbon dioxide effervescence as a result. The yeast is filtered out after fermentation. It is known as the Charmat method, an Italian technique for creating sparkling wine invented in 1895. It is more efficient than the traditional method used to create Champagne and other European wines, hence this wine’s great value.
Typical strong apple and grapefruit scents with wisteria and elderberry hints. Good structure, pleasant mouthfeel, well-balanced and harmonious. It has a remarkable yeasty flavour as well as a result of the Charmat method. It is easy to drink and enjoy. It tastes slightly sweeter than traditional dry Champagne and seems like the ideal refresher to sip on a hot summer day.
This sparkling wine tastes best chilled at 6-8 degrees Celsius and served as an aperitif to be drunk before the meal, or with a light, fresh meal involving meats such as fish. Try it with legume and shellfish soups, noodles with delicate meat sauces, fresh cheeses, and white meats. The wine also complements acidic flavours like capers, lemon, and vinegar. Available at haven wines.
As an aperitif, it works well for celebrations, picnics, or lighthearted gatherings. This kind of wine should be drunk “young” when it is still new and tastes its best.
