Riccadonna Extra Dry

Paris, France — We liked the sleek black bottle. We liked the fact that is was absolutely extra dry without a soupçon of sugar. And we really liked the fact that it was a 2020 vintage. An extra dry vintage Prosecco is hard to come by. But Riccadonna who has been bringing Prosseco to us since 1921 has done just that with its Extra Dry Millesimato 2020. Its pale color was attractive, it’s delicate bubbles even more so. Lightly fruity but superbly dry, the quality of the 2020 harvest turned this Prosecco into a marvelous vintage. Made entirely from the Glera grape variety, a white grape that originally hailed from Slovenia and took well to the Veneto region of Italy, is perfect for cocktail hour and festive feasts and occasions but it is nicely paired with fish and seafood platters. The sparkling wine was awarded with Elle Magazine’s silver medal in the Prosecco category. Riccadonna is part of the Campari group.
