Prosecco D.O.C.G.: Extra Brut is sanctioned by Prosecco’s Governing Body

Some modifications to the production rules for wines with the Controlled and Guaranteed Denomination of Origin “Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco” have recently been published in the Official Gazette; notably, the Extra Brut style was officially introduced for wines with a sugar residue between 0 and 6 gr/liter.

In compliance with this new provision, the terms Pas Dosé and Brut Nature will no longer appear on the label and will be replaced by the words Extra Brut. With immediate effect the new name will therefore be: “Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Millesimato Extra Brut”.

This update in classification nomenclature meets the demands of the market, given that consumers’ taste is increasingly oriented towards wines that have lower accentuated sugar levels. This is an official document, made up of numerous pages and sections that define in detail all the requirements that wines from a specific Denomination must have: from the correct production chain to the vinification techniques, up to the characteristics that contribute to delineating the product’s belonging and uniqueness.

All to guarantee that producers create an excellent product and consumers can know they are buying an excellent product.
