An Asolo Prosecco in second place among the Italian bubbles in the 5StarWines competition
Asolo Prosecco is stronger than the crisis. From the beginning of January to the end of June 2020, the certified production of Asolo Prosecco amounted to 7.8 million bottles , with a leap forward of 8.3% compared to the first half of 2019. The development dynamic of Asolo Prosecco takes on a particularly significant light if you look at the data for the second quarter alone, that is the three months in which the Covid-19 pandemic produced the most serious repercussions on the Italian and international economy: between April and June 2020 Asolo Prosecco it grew by 7.6% compared to the same quarter of last year, proving to be in sharp contrast to the vast majority of the Italian and foreign wine sector.
The favorable trend of the name was illustrated by the President of the Asolo Prosecco Consortium during the Shareholders' Meeting held on Tuesday 30 June. “In a context of global crisis that has seen the wine sector undergo a sharp downsizing - said President Ugo Zamperoni - Asolo Prosecco can breathe a sigh of relief and look to the future with confidence. We are also comforted by the situation of stocks, which allow us to manage demand virtually without tension until the next harvest. "
In light of the market dynamics, unlike what happens for a very large part of the denominations of Italian origin, the Assembly of the Asolo Prosecco Consortium did not discuss any measures to contain the yield of grapes per hectare in view of the harvest. "I believe that our supply chain - underlined Zamperoni - can look confidently to the months to come, because fortunately for now we have no heaviness in the offer, nor a slowdown in demand to be calmed with precautionary measures".
If the market continues to give more than satisfactory responses, criticism is also taking an interest in the reality of Asolo Prosecco. This is confirmed by the result of the tastings of the Vinitaly 5StarWines guide , which saw an Asolo Prosecco Extra Dry, the 57 of the Cantina Montelliana, rank second overall among sparkling wines, with a score of 95 cents, behind only one Trento DOC. Thirteen other Asolo Prosecco labels have also reached or exceeded the prestigious threshold of 90 points: at 93 cents there are Brut Oro della Regina di Dal Bello and the Extra Dry Sottocroda by Vini Costa, at 92 cents the Dry by Simone Rech el 'Extra Dry Selvatico di Vigna Rampante, at 91 the Extra Dry of Montelliana and the Extra Brut of Montelvini, at 90 the Brut of the Commendator Rosalio Pozzobon, the Brut Serenitas of Montelvini, the Extra Brut of Montelliana, the Extra Brut Celeber by Dal Bello, the Extra Brut Era Grande by Simone Rech, the Extra Brut Fanò by Astoria Vini and the Extra Dry by Tenuta Dalla Francesca.
