FAQs about Prosecco
Both Prosecco and Champagne are sparkling wines grown under different exacting conditions to produce unique flavor profiles. While many sparkling wines are generically referred to as Champagne, this title is only attributable to sparkling wine made in the Champagne region of France. It must be made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, or Chardonnay grapes, or a blend of all three. Champagne is produced from the "Methode Champenoise," which entails adding more yeast and sugar to an existing base of wine. The mixture is then put through a second fermentation process, during which it picks up its signature flavor notes. The fermented yeast collects in the neck of the bottle when it is tipped and spun during the fermenting process.
Prosecco, as we know, comes from an area in Northern Italy called Veneto. The production method of Prosecco differs from Champagne as the secondary fermentation that produces the signature fizz occurs in steel tanks rather than in bottles. The impact of this secondary fermentation method results in a lighter body than its French counterpart. Instacart boasts a wide selection of both French and Italian sparkling wines that can be delivered to your door in time for your next celebration.
While some fear the pressurized pop of the Prosecco cork, opening the perfect glass of fizzy takes just a few steps. Remove the outer foil and the wire cage enclosing the cork. Place a kitchen towel over the cork and lightly twist the bottle (the towel will pick up any small drips or spills upon opening). Hold the cork in place as you slowly twist the bottle until you feel some of the pressure release and the cork begins to loosen and eventually emerge with a soft pop. Pour about half an inch of Prosecco in a glass and let it sit for a few moments before topping off the glass. Allowing the Prosecco to settle will help to avoid any overflows so as not to waste any of this deliciously special treat.
Prosecco is ideally served in tulip glasses that are specially shaped to collect the aromatics in the wider bowl. Some wine enthusiasts prefer enjoying Prosecco from a white wine glass that allows you to enjoy a good whiff of the sparkling wine, which can enhance the experience. Both tulip and wine glasses are tapered at the top to keep the bubbles from escaping too quickly.
