Also known as the Prosecco grape, this green-skinned northern Italy variety has been grown for hundreds of years in the Veneto and Friuli regions. It is used to produce the famous sparkling Prosecco wines.
Italian wine produced by the Glera grape is almost always either frizzante (fizzy) or Spumante (fully sparkling). This variety, with its high acidity and fairly neutral palate, makes it ideal for sparkling wine production. A highly productive grape, it ripens late in the season.
Light-bodied, with a peachy nose, it is low in alcohol, perfect as an aperitif or a light summer beverage.
