Aperitif Prosecco DOC Brut and Prosciutto
“Aperitivo” time, Italy’s happiest hour, is without doubt an iconic moment of the Italian lifestyle that has become popular at international level. It is a time to socialize, relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink, usually Prosecco, accompanied by delicous bites.
For Aperitif time we propose La Jara Organic Prosecco Spumante Brut paired with prosciutto crudo. This sparkling wine features an elegant and fine perlage, the rich and complex aromas of white flowers and green apple. The taste is fresh and persistent, aromatic and balanced, with pleasant notes of bread crust.
The wine is dry, leaving a clean palate due to its low sugar content and its acidity.
All these characteristics make it the perfect companion for prosciutto crudo – raw ham. The aromatic notes of this wine pair perfectly with the sweet taste and aromas of the cured meat, resulting in a pleasant aftertaste.
We recommend to serve the wine in a large tulip glass at 7°C. Cheers!
Why Organic Prosecco La Jara
La Jara Organic Prosecco is made entirely from organic Glera grapes we grow ourselves. Our grapes are grown in vineyards with a distinctive terroir: the soil is compounded of white limestones.
Owing to the terroir’s unusual pecularity and the organic viticulture we apply in our vineyards, the grapes fully express their noble characteristic: fresh and rich varietal scents and with pleasant mineral notes.
We vinify our grapes using a modern and technological process which allows us for the respectful transfer of grape to bottle, while retaining fragrance, freshness, and varietal aromas. The resulting wine is hearty and express more varietal character, more intense scents and tastes fresh.
