Figo Prosecco has become widely popular for its distinct flavor and affordability making it one of the most sought after sparkling wines on the market today.
Prosecco has been produced in Italy since the early 1800s. The name “Figo” was created in 1951 by winemaker Antonio Follador as a tribute to his son Luigi (nicknamed “Figo”). It was first released in 1967 as Follador’s signature Prosecco and quickly became one of Italy’s most beloved sparkling wines. Today, Figo Prosecco is made by the same family that has been producing it since its inception over fifty years ago.
The production process begins with sorting through handpicked grapes from vineyards located in Treviso and Conegliano in the Veneto region of Italy. The grapes are then gently pressed to extract their juice which is then cold fermented at low temperatures for approximately two weeks before being bottled under pressure to create the bubbles which define a sparkling wine. Finally, it goes through a filtration process before being aged for at least three months prior to release.
Figo Prosecco has an elegant, light-bodied taste with floral aromas like jasmine, rose petals and citrus fruits such as lemon zest, lime and grapefruit accompanied by hints of honeydew melon on the palate. Its delicate bubbles lead into a crisp finish that makes it perfect for any occasion or simply enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or at brunch time with friends.
Figo Prosecco can be served chilled on its own or with fruit juices or tonic water for an added twist of flavor. It pairs well with seafood dishes such as grilled shrimp or crab cakes as well as lighter pasta dishes such as linguine al pesto or spaghetti aglio e olio; cheeses such as brie; charcuterie; antipasti; apples; pears; nuts; desserts like tiramisu or panna cotta; and creamy sauces such as Alfredo sauce over pasta or risotto dishes . Additionally, Figo Prosecco is popularly used to make Bellini cocktails – a delightful combination of fresh peach puree mixed with prosecco – which make excellent summertime sippers!
