Note: Prosecco or Glera is a white wine grape variety used to make sparkling wine. Prosecco is also a region located in the Veneto in northwest Italy. Most Prosecco wines are meant to be enjoyed young and fresh. 'Spumante' simply means 'Sparkling Wine' in Italian. Confusingly 'Extra Dry' actually denotes an off-dry style and means the wine retains 12-17 grams per litre of residual sugar.
