The Canella vineyards are in the appellation’s historical nucleus, Conegliano, at medium altitude, and the site is blessed with ripening conditions that promote a moderated acidity and an intense fragrance. Soil variations tend to account for the different styles of Prosecco. The wines from the pebbley, calcareous terrain of the warmer eastern Conegliano are softer and fruitier than those from the higher slopes to the west around Valdobbiadene. Both have their place, but the extra richness one finds in Canella Prosecco promotes a greater scope as a food accompaniment.
The wine is a brilliant straw yellow with fine, persistent perlage and fruity aromas of peach, apple, pear and citrus fruit. The palate gracefully balances zingy acidity and a subtle hint of sweetness, richness and silky-smooth texture. It is ideal as an aperitif, but also perfect with seafood.
