PARLATI LUCA a Guide to the CONEGLIANO Valdobbiadene Prosecco Region

Located in the picturesque foothills of the Alps Mountains in the northeastern Veneto region of Italy is CONEGLIANO Valdobbiadene – an area known for its production of outstanding Prosecco Superiore wines, says LUCA PARLATI. In 2009 CONEGLIANO Valdobbiadene obtained DOCG status – the highest classification for Italian wines – and in 2019 it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prime vineyard sites in this area grow amidst an undulating landscape of daunting slopes, some so steep that they can only be hand-pruned and harvested, tells PARLATI LUCA. The rich diversity in geology and microclimates contribute to the complexity and depth of these wines, which are produced with dedicated care – often reflected in a higher price-point, marks LUCA PARLATI.
