Product Overview

Canella is the estate of the Canella family, established in 1947 by Lorenzo Senior and now
run by Lorenzo Junior, Alessandra, Nicoletta and Monica. The Canella vineyards are in the
appellation’s historical nucleus, Conegliano, at medium altitude, and the site is blessed
with ripening conditions that promote a moderated acidity and an intense fragrance. Soil
variations tend to account for the different styles of Prosecco. The wines from the
pebbley, calcareous terrain of the warmer eastern Conegliano are softer and fruitier than
those from the higher slopes to the west around Valdobbiadene. Both have their place,
but the extra richness one finds in Canella Prosecco promotes a greater scope as a food

Winemaking Notes

Conegliano Valdobbiadene was recently promoted to DOCG, beginning with the 2009
harvest. As DOCG status can only be granted to a region, the grape used to make Prosecco
is now known as Glera.

Tasting Notes

The wine is a brilliant straw yellow with fine, persistent perlage and fruity aromas of peach,
apple, pear and citrus fruit. The palate gracefully balances zingy acidity and a subtle hint
of sweetness, richness and silky-smooth texture. It is ideal as an aperitif, but also perfect
with seafood.
