It’s the season for celebrating with friends and family. I’m sure there will be a lot of bubbles uncorked and sabered. I recently got to sample Ca’ Furlan Prosecco although I was told I couldn’t saber the bottles. I did restrain, but I did share them with neighbors and their new pizza oven. So regardless of what type of gathering you will be attending, Ca’ Furlan is sure to please the crowd and pair well with the food.
Created by Alessandro Furlan and his friend Charlie Trivinia, all Ca’ Furlan wines are named after the women in both of their families. The grapes are sourced from some of the best vineyards in the Prosecco DOC. The wines are made Extra-Dry meaning there is 13-14% residual sugar in the wine. You can not detect the sweetness as the acidity in the grapes balance out the wine beautifully.
These two bottles of Prosecco not only paired well with great neighbors and pizza, at $11.99 they are a great everyday pair of bubbles. What is really special is that this is the first year of Prosecco Rose DOC. What that means is that they approved Prosecco Rose and it must include a blend of the Glera grape and Pinot Nero grape and this is Ca’ Furlan’s first Rose Prosecco. The wine comes in 750ml bottles as well as a 200 ml bottle, which is great to pack for the beach, hike, or apres ski.
Ca’ Furlan Prosecco Extra-Dry “Cuvee Beatrice” – named after Alessandro’s daughter is 100% Glera grape and shows notes of lemon, pear, green apple and white flowers. Soft mouthfeel, balanced and a nice finish.
Ca’ Furlan Prosecco Rose Brut “Cuvee Mariana” named after Trivinia’s family is a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir. Notes of sour cherry, raspberry and hint of herbs, the palate is full and rounded with a nice crisp finish.
