Unfiltered prosecco in the US?

lambretta76 May 16, 2008 01:10 PM

While in Venice a couple of years back, we had some amazing unfiltered proseccos at a small wine bar specializing in the sparkly stuff (it's called Al Prosecco).

Anyways, I've been trying to find it here in the US - does anyone have a lead on it?

    I know of one! Adami makes an unfiltered prosecco that is labeled 'sur lie' and it's very good! It appears cloudy in the glass (as it should) an has a much more vibrant and intense fruit quality that I find lacking in filtered prosecco. It is imported by dalla terra and their website shows who distributes their wines in which states. Defintely worth the hunt, good luck!

      Just a follow-up with a nice review of several prosecco colfondo producers -- http://dobianchi.com/2011/03/02/prose...

      Ah - just found my old post after I returned from Venice - it's called prosecco col fundo (maybe fondo):


      Maybe that will help things out? Thanks for your insights, as always!

        Try Kermit Lynch. There was one a while back that was sur lie I think that seemed unfiltered.

            I had never heard of this, I have had unfiltered chardonnay and pinot noir, but not prosecco, hmmmmm. when searching on the internet, nothing came up. not a good sign. I guess you will have to go back to Venice!!!!!!! Lucky for you, prosecco is on a lot of retailers shelves. I would read the back of every prosecco bottle in stores and maybe you will come across one. I am curious now too!
