Background: Caposaldo was created in honor of the Roman Empire’s most famous racing horse of the Circus Maximus. Competing for an astounding 24 years and winning 1,500 of his over 4,000 races this horse gained the favor of Emperor Nero, who anointed the horse “Caposaldo”.  In today’s modern world the classic icon of the horse still resonates as a symbol of superior achievement and quality.  Standing as a benchmark of classic Italian wines from select regions of Italy, Caposaldo blends the best of a family / hand-crafted artisanal approach to wine making with modern quality standards and techniques. Caposaldo Prosecco is a Bubbly Italian Style, a classic Italian sparkling wine, perfect for everyday celebrations.  Slightly lower in alcohol and infused with a luscious aroma, the clean, crisp flavors of Caposaldo Prosecco offer an easy and affordable taste of la dolce vita.  A natural choice for an aperitivo, lunch, dinner, or casual celebratory events with friends and family, the lively taste of the Prosecco is perfect on its own or in the classic Bellini and other sparkling cocktails.

Wine Notes: Pale straw with greenish undertones; fruity aroma with citrus, green apple and acacia flowers. A pleasant acidity, freshness and full-bodied flavor make this a perfect wine to drink as an aperitivo or with and antipasto or dinner.

Pairings: Light cheeses, cured meats, antipasti, fish (raw/cooked) fried foods, light-fleshed meats, light pastas and desserts.
