Prosecco & Spritz – Discovering this glamorous Wine and its Aperitifs
Translation: Richard Sadleir
ISBN: 978-88-99180-92-8 (English)


In purity, in all its lively harmony of aromas and flavors. Or mixed with fruit and spirits to which it grants its pearls of taste. The Prosecco is the undisputed protagonist of the international wine scene in recent years. It tells of a generous land, cultivated with love and dedication, which bears precious fruits. This book, through wonderful images and carefully told, offers a complete picture of this land, satisfying the curiosity of those who want to go beyond the label. And it contains 25 classic recipes and unpublished signed by one of the most renowned barmen of Venice to introduce the reader to spritz, the best known and most glamorous aperitif in the world.

From the preface by Antonio Padovan, director of As long as there is Prosecco there is hope:

"The year zero of Prosecco is 2009, when this grape with a centuries-old history loses its name. The Prosecco vine becomes Glera. And Prosecco becomes that wine made mainly with Glera grapes and produced only in an area that includes part of the Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia Since then this new “Made in Italy” drink has become fashionable. The hills where it is produced are quickly transformed into effervescent oil wells. Straw-yellow gold mines.
[...] When I drink the Prosecco that I choose for myself, I smell the scent of passion, not the chemistry of the new millennium. The Prosecco I like is made by people who have understood that the land is not ours, but we have it on loan from our grandchildren. "
