NV Le Vigne di Alice Brut “Tajad” Frizzante, Veneto, Italy
Cinzia and Pier Francesca are passion, full-tilt. These are two women in the rocky northernmost reaches of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene with the Dolomites in their backyard. They are on a mission to make pure, elegant, natural, mineral Prosecco. They have met the challenge that most producers can only speak of, but not achieve, or rather, actually even try. Prosecco has a certain place in the world market and to try to find a way to change that widely accepted perception would be madness. Step one for the Cazian family was organic farming, something also considered a bit out there in this high volume region due to the extra labor it requires. But the results of their passion, and adherence to a hands on approach, are their line of wines that truly stand out amidst a sea of just plain old Prosecco.
