Marchiori Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut 2021
WineSpark Price €21.21
There’s DOC Prosecco and then there’s DOCG Prosecco. DOCG is the top 10% of Prosecco, made in the hills rather than the flat plains.
Umberto’s Rocciamadre Brut Prosecco is also the only Prosecco made by hand from five ancient grape varieties, from steep hilly sites with a wonderful mixture of soils.
This wine tastes as good as it looks, and you’ll find it right at home in Michelin-starred restaurants as the welcome wine.
You just can’t find a more artisanal, authentic Prosecco out there and this is exactly what WineSpark is all about.

Umberto Marchiori and his family are a rare breed indeed - a small Prosecco producer. In a region dominated by mass-produced generic-tasting fizz, Marchiori wines really stand out.
He went to university 20 years ago with a mutual friend of ours, Carlos Rodriguez, which is how we got in touch. Funny how it took a well-travelled Spaniard living in Rioja to find me the real deal of Prosecco.
If you’re living in the Prosecco region, you’d be more likely to have a shot of this at 9am instead of a flat white. This also goes amazingly with raw fish.

Very much enjoyed it in unexpected sunshine. , will reorder.
Gave this to my daughter to celebrate her new job. She absolutely loved it - dry without losing any flavour. Superior tipple to be savoured. One to order for Christmas.
