One of the things we love the most about Prosecco is how versatile it is at the dinner table.
It’s one of those unique wines — really, the only wine like it — that can be served throughout the meal, from amuse bouche to the grand finale (our favourite dish, dessert!).
Prosecco has just the right balance of fruit flavors and sweetness that it works with a wide range of aromas and flavors.
But one of the places where Prosecco really shines is when it’s paired with something sweet.
That’s a photo of Tiramisù, above: The legendary dolce invented just a stone’s throw away from the village where our Prosecco is grown — Treviso.
Tiramisù literally means pick me up or cheer me up in Italian. And that’s because that’s what it does!
It’s a “layered” pudding that alternates lady fingers and a light custard made from mascarpone cheese, all of it gloriously sprinkled with cocoa.
While Prosecco can be paired with a lot of different cakes, custards, and puddings (like this one), there’s something about the way the texture of the dish interacts with the wine’s bubbles that makes it a truly sublime experience.
After all, as the saying goes, if it grows with it, it goes with it!
There couldn’t be a more traditional dessert pairing for Prosecco, a dish created just a short drive from Valdobbiadene (where Prosecco is grown) and where it is still served proudly today accompanied by a glass of Venetian bubbly.
Try it out for yourself and you’ll thank us!
