Torzi Matthews Vigna Cantina Prosecco 2018

There’s been a fair bit of to and fro between Italy and Australia on the right to use ‘Prosecco’ on a wine label. Of course, the grape variety has always been called Prosecco, so the Italians had a crack at renaming it ‘Glera’, which didn’t really cut the mustard. Now they’ve modified the boundaries of the region to include the town of ‘Prosecco’, so they can claim it as a place name. The saga continues. My thoughts are they have a right to exclusivity of the name, and likely as strong a claim as that of Champagne, but then I have a bias towards Italy, though I could swap sides just as quickly as they do. 🙂 And also, a confession, I smashed the first bottle making Aperol spritzes when I rolled home one evening, quite drunk, with a bunch of friends. Mia culpa. This is a second tasting. No Aperol this time, though I still kind of want to.
