I recently attended an evening of “contemporary Italian wine and design” that married the Texas launch of VOVETI Prosecco with a tour of the incredibly cool Scott+Cooner designer showroom of Italian designers. The product is a result of a partnership between Freixenet, one of the main Cava producers in Spain, and the Collavini family in Italy.
Brand manager Liz Hartley talked about how the Ferrer family wanted to expand and create an “authentic Italian Prosecco by going to the source” and the labor of love that went into this project. Because the end goal was to keep quality tight, showcase the caliber of the fruit and launch a higher-end product, only 7000 cases were produced. I tasted lemon, almond, floral and a little minerality at the end. And, for $17, this is a great alternative to other higher priced sparkling wines. You can find VOVETI at Mr. Gs and Sigels.
