Friuli Venezia Giulia
Prosecco Organic NV – Piera Martellozzo
Well balanced, intense yet delicate with fruity aromas. The palate displays hints of peach, pear and a touch of sweet melon with enough crispness to keep the palate lively and refreshed. Easy to drink. It is perfect for a variety of occasions and food pairings. Its light and refreshing character makes it an excellent choice for aperitifs and starting a meal. It pairs particularly well with seafood dishes, such as shrimp and grilled fish, thanks to its crisp acidity and effervescence.

Beginning in 1899, at the Padua estate, Piera’s story has been passed down through the family from generation to generation, from father to daughter.
Founded by her grandfather Giovanni, developed by her father Mario, Piera 1899 owes its reputation both in Italy and abroad to Piera Martellozzo, who, with her pioneering, ahead-of-her-times spirit, led the winery to its primary role in the Italian wine scenario with talent, frequently anticipating trends and seeking out its own path to quality.
The recognised quality of Piera 1899 wines is the result of everyday hard work founded on respect for the land and its traditions.
Since the 1990s thorough reassessment work on then little known native vines was done with varieties such as Raboso del Piave and Ribolla Gialla. In 1998 the first organic wine range was launched. Since the noughties an ever growing Prosecco production has been supplemented by new sparkling wines such as Muller Thurgau, Traminer and Moscato.
While Italian Prosecco has its roots in ancient times, the grape has long been grown in Slovenia, and more recently in Australia.
