Le Vigne di Alice Tajad Vino Frizzante
Tajad’ Frizzante is an affectionate glance back to a time when wine growers in the Prosecco zone had a range of characterful, antique varieties in their vineyards. This wine is Cinzia’s homage to her grandparents, who made a similar field blend of Verdiso, Boschera, and Glera, but as a still rather than a sparkling wine. (By the way, that was the wine that Cinzia’s grandmother, Alice, served in her osteria).
Brut dry and ready to please Prosecco historians and dilettantes alike.
Honeysuckle, yuzu citrus, and wet river stones on the nose, minerality, zesty grapefruit, a touch of lemon meringue, and an unexpected spiciness on the palate. This frizzante wine (lighter bubbles than spumante) is intended to be enjoyed like a good still wine – use normal glassware, not flutes.
