BiancaVigna is a relatively new producer of Prosecco, but it is rapidly gaining recognition for the quality of its wines. We review three of them below. BiancaVigna was founded in 2004 by the sister and brother team Elena and Enrico Moschetta. Enrico is the winemaker and vineyard manager, while his sister is business manager. They manage 12ha of vineyards, including 5.5ha in Pieve di Soligo, 3.2ha in Conegliano, and 2.8ha in Soligo. The winery is located in San Pietro di Feletto.
The US importer is Indigenous Selections.
BiancaVigna NV Spumante Rose Brut ($19) 89 A fine mousse, light cherry and red berry aromas and flavors, and excellent balance make this an outstanding Spumante value. Made of 95% Giara and 5% Pinot Noir and with just a touch of sweetness on the finish, this is a very enjoyable sparkling wine. Perfect as an aperitif. RS 9.9 g/l
BiancaVigna NV Brut Prosecco ($18) 87 This Brut is fun and easy drinking with fine bubbles and bright citrus and apple aromas and flavors. Made of 100% Glera from San Pietro di Feletto and Soligo, it would serve as a great base for a Sunday brunch mimosa. RS 12 g/l. With an annual production of 80 thousand bottles, this is the standard bearer for BiancaVigna.
BiancaVigna 2014 Prosecco Superiore Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene DOCG ($23) 88 The Prosecco Superiore reveals orchard fruit and a touch of citrus. It has a crisp, spirited attack, a creamy mouth feel, and light effervescence and finishes surprisingly dry and short. Made mostly of handpicked fruit from the Monticella vineyards in Conegliano. 9.9 g/l RS.
