Ruggeri Giustino Bisol Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG

Giustino B. 2015 has been awarded by the presigious guide Vini Buoni d'Italia, published by Gambero Rosso, with the most important title: Sparkling Wine of the Year. This is the first time ever that this prize is given to a Prosecco and, more in general, to a sparkling wine made with the Charmat Method.

Moreover, Giustino B. has also been awarded with the Tre Bicchieri - Three Glasses - for the year 2017.

Dedicated to Giustino Bisol, who founded the winery in 1950, this sparkling wine is the fruit of extensive trials and experiments with particular selections and techniques, from the vines to the bottle. The Giustino B. therefore embodies the living expression of our experience and determination in the search for the very best and of our passionate dedication to the grape itself (traditionally called Prosecco). After the first fermentation the wine matures in the big vats at a low temperature until spring and then it is transferred in the pressure-vats for the second fermentation. It remains with its yeast until the bottling that is carried on at the beginning of June. We suggest to drink it from September.

Tasting note
Bright straw yellow in colour with persistent aromas of green apples, minerals and fresh baked bread. Good concentration on the palate backed by vibrant acidity, persistant, effervescent bubbles and a clean, balanced, crisp finish.

Food Matching Note
Ideal as an aperitif or with light canapés, would also suit spicy dishes such as sweet-and-sour fish or even Thai-spiced shrimp salad with Asian greens and pesto dressing.

History
As the Prosecco boom gathers pace in the UK, finding an authentic expression of this crowd-pleasing sparkling wine becomes all the more important – and ever more difficult. Step forward Ruggeri, established by Giustino Bisol in 1950 and now run by his son, Paolo, and grandchildren Giustino and Isabella. This winery’scollection of Proseccos – many bottled as top-quality Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG – are among the finest to be found in the region. And don’t be misled: Ruggeri may only have been established in 1950 (and it moved to its current home in Valdobbiadene as recently as the early 1990s), but this is a family synonymous with the history of the region.
The place name ‘Case Bisoi’ – houses of the Bisols – is found on the area’s oldest maps, and the family has been cultivating grapes here for centuries. Through this long-standing connection with the region, the Bisols have established unrivalled relationships with more than 100 of the finest grape growers, mainly in the Valdobbiadene municipality.
There’s a particular focus on the prized districts of San Pietro di Barbozza, Santo Stefano and Saccol, but the family also sources grapes from a select band ofgrowers in the lesser-known, but highly sought-after, Cartizze enclave where Ruggeri also has its own vines.
