'The highlights of the aromatic spectrum here are cleanliness and fineness. The fruity hints are very strong, with sharp green apple and citrus standing out and complemented by fresh floral hints. The agile flavour developing on the palette is felt at once, vital and dry. The freshness of this wine makes it ideal as an aperitif with sea food and with dishes dressed with extra virgin olive oil, such as fish salad. It also goes very well with lard crostini.' – Michele Bressan

'This is the number one sparkling wine from the Bortolomiol traditional line. The Roman numeral on the bottle and the name Prior bear testament to the fact that Giuliano Bortolomiol had the intuition to create a brut Prosecco at a time when it was only ever an extra dry. Prior symbolises Giuliano’s pioneering spirit and his belief in Prosecco di Valdobbiadene (now Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Docg) and in the Martinotti Charmat sparkling winemaking method with fermentation in an autoclave, also known as the Italian Method.' – Bortolomiol

Producer information Known as the pioneer of the Prosecco world, Giuliano Bortolomiol was the first to create Prosecco Brut. Following in his father’s footsteps, winemaking came naturally to Giuliano, and it was in 1949 that he founded his family winery. After the Second World War many abandoned the countryside and the dilapidated vineyards to find better work, but Giuliano saw it as his mission to revive the vineyards and particularly to enhance Prosecco. He was among the founders of the Confraternita del Prosecco (Prosecco Wine Fraternity) and the Mostra dello Spumante (Sparkling Wine Exhibition). Giuliano’s life work was fulfilled with Prosecco Superiore obtaining DOCG designation. Today the winery is run by Giuliano’s four daughters, Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana with their mother Ottavia.
