Desiderio Jeio (Bisol) Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut NV 187ml

91 James Suckling

“The Jeio Prosecco Superiore NV has bright aromas of fresh green apple, with notes of citrus fruit, peach, apricot, and banana. White flowers and vegetal notes of freshly cut grass complement the spicy finish. Dry with a consistent body, this wine is elegant, fresh, and crispy, but not light.” –Gianluca Bisol, President & CEO

"The Jeio line is inspired by the influential Desiderio Bisol, whose wife lovingly referred to him as Jeio. The father of the current owners, Desiderio is dedicated to product quality, acquiring only the steepest plots. While considerably more difficult to work, these plots are ideal for vine cultivation. As a result of his vision, the Glera cultivated in these vineyards is especially rich in malic acid, making the final wine more dynamic and evolved. Only the best Glera grapes are selected from Bisol’s 35 plots in Valdobbiadene to make the highly aromatic Jeio Brut" -Wilson Daniels
