Col Fondo Bianco, Zanotto, Italy
We've always been fans of this style of bone-dry, cloudy frizzante from the Prosecco-producing area in north east Italy.
When we first opened in 2013 (as Park+Bridge), this was the col fondo we stocked. For many reasons, we haven't been able to get hold of it for a while - but now we are delighted to welcome it back.
Fondo (bottom in Italian, as in depth... ) refers to the sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Around Venice and Treviso, you might also see this as 'sui lieviti'. It is the old way of making Prosecco, refermented in bottle, but the dead yeast left in the bottle. So instead of all those fruit salad flavours leaping from the glass as you might get with normal Prosecco, you have white grapefruit notes, salinity- and intrigue.
No added sulphites.
