Glera is the name by which the grape Prosecco is now officially known. This changed in 2009 when Prosecco di Conegliano-Valdobbiadene was promoted to full DOCG status (the highest level of Italian wine quality). It has grown for hundreds of years in Veneto and Fruili regions in Italy.A white grape variety most commonly known as a sparkling wine known as Prosecco di Conegliano DOC. This sparkling wine comes in two main forms, both made using the charmat method - frizzante is gently sparkling while spumante is fully sparkling. The vine produces grapes that ripen late in the season, with high acidity and neutral aromas and flavours, perfect for sparkling wine. The wine produced is light in body and low in alcohol making them a wonderful summer drink or an aperitif.
