Term Definition
Prosecco

Pronounced: Pr-sec-co

A white grape and a sparkling wine produced in North Eastern Italy. A wine can only be termed "Prosecco" when it is from the specific DOCG Prosecco area in Italy AND it is made from at least 85% prosecco grapes. The remaining 15% can be from other white grapes grown in the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia regions.

Prosecco is produced using the Tank Method (where secondary fermentation takes place in steel tanks rather Champagne's method of using bottles). See 'Tank method' for further information.
