In 1987, Sergio Cosmo started this winery which is located in the very heart of the Prosecco producing region while also completely replacing the vine varieties on land he already owned. On the hills surrounding Conegliano, about 50 miles north of Venice, lies the beautiful estate of Bellenda. The Cosmo family also re-designed the layout of the vineyard, planting 80% of the grapes now used for Prosecco and other sparkling wines with the rest used for still wines.
Today, the family business is run by Umberto and Luigi Cosmo, who have a passion for making wine which marries tradition and innovation for the production of truly outstanding wines.

This graceful, fragrant Prosecco is the fruit of a selection of Glera grapes from the finest vineyards in the region of Cordignano, Sarmede, and Cappella Maggiore in the hills of Treviso. The vines, largely trained to the Sylvoz system, are planted to an average density of 4,000 per hectare. The harvest, entirely by hand, is carried out in the mid-September, the yield averages 90 q./ha. The clusters are de-stemmed then gently pressed in a bladder press. After gravity-settling, the must is fermented, then re-ferments in 100hl steel pressure fermenters for about two months, in accord with the Italian Method.
Fratelli Prosecco appears luminous and sparkling , with a delicate bead of fine bubbles and a soft but generous mousse. The bouquet is generous, with emphatic notes of golden delicious apple, peach and wisteria, displaying a wonderful balance between fragrance and refreshing crispness. The palate is fruit-forward and smooth, full-bodied and well-structured; overall, it is a harmonious and elegant wine.
An ideal aperitif wine, while it's firm structure and body admirably suit it for partnering with Italian antipasti and first courses of vegetable and fish.

This fragrant, delicate Prosecco Rose is a quality selection of the finest Glera and Pinot Noir grapes grown in individual vineyard parcels in the province of Treviso, where limestone-rich soils ensure a firm structure to the wines here. The vineyards, all within the Prosecco DOC region, face south-southeast. The climate is temperate, with cold winters and warm summers, and consistent ventilation. The vines, dense-planted , are trained to a mixture of spurred cordon and Sylvoz. The grapes are picked exclusively by hand, around mid-September; yields in must average of 90 hl/ha.

The must is then gravity-settled and fermented. Effervescence is achieved via the Italian Method in 30hl steel pressure fermenters over a period of minimum two months.
