In a nutshell: A very classy, softly sparkling, organic Prosecco with plenty of flavour.
The lowdown: La Jara, based in the heart of Prosecco country just south of Conegliano, make a superb range of organic wines including some excellent Proseccos such as this. Being a frizzante it's got a soft sparkle and in some ways helps the fruit character stand out that bit more. With masses of fine bubbles and flavours of apple, peach, pear and ripe citrus fruits it's a very approachable style that's perhaps a bit too easy to drink. Certainly a step above a lot of other Proseccos.
When to drink: It's freshness makes it a great 'anytime' fizz. It's also really good alongside nibbles like olives, or tortill chips and dips.
The long rows of vineyards belong to the Marion family, owners of the La Jara farm, since 1891. The love for the land and its fruits has been handed down from generation to generation and today it is carried out with dedication and commitment by Massimo and Paolo Marion, who have been running the company since 1999.
Paolo and Massimo, guided by the values ??and expertise handed down by grandfather Pietro, brought their innovative character by completely revolutionizing the processing techniques and moving to completely organic agriculture.
Situated in the heart of the North-East of Italy, just 50 km from Venice, is the homeland of Prosecco and it's precisely here, between the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene up to the Piave river where their vineyards lie
La Jara stands out in the production of quality organic wines, inspired by the principles of respect for the vineyard and its natural fertility cycle. The long rows lined up in the flat fields surrounding the winery extend for 50 hectares until they touch the stony bed of the Piave river which has given the land a unique morphology.
