FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOTAL BEVERAGE SOLUTION LAUNCHES TIZIANO PROSECCO SPUMANTE
Italian Wine Brand Expands Portfolio with Sparkling Wine
MT. PLEASANT, SC (January 24, 2011) – Beverage importer and supplier Total Beverage Solution (TBS) announces the launch of Tiziano Prosecco Spumante. Italian wine brand Tiziano, which is owned and marketed by TBS, first entered the market 20 years ago with its successful Chianti and since then has built considerable consumer loyalty. Tiziano represents the best possible value in each of their categories: Chianti, Chianti Riserva, Pinot Grigio and most recently in 2011 with the Prosecco Spumante. These fine wines were named in honor of Tiziano Vecellio, better known as Titian, the greatest painter of the 16th-century Venetian School, recognized as “the sun admist the stars.”
The bubbly beverage begins north of Venice, Italy, with hand-picked Glera grapes (also known as Prosecco grapes for the moniker of a nearby town.) The area is home to the best growing conditions: southward-facing, pre-alpine slopes with austere, well drained gravelly soil.
Tiziano Prosecco is the result of both handcrafted procedures and state-of-the-art equipment. The grapes are rushed to the San Feletto winery and gently pressed on a Bucher pneumatic press, producing only the fiore juice, which is free run juice with the first gentle pressing.
The secondary fermentation is done carefully, letting not the slightest oxidation occur. Winemakers leave the young wine on the lees and inside pressure vats for an extended period of time to create an extremely fine and persistent effervescence. After bottling, a settling period of two to three months follows.
The grape produces lively, aromatic wines with notes of green and yellow apples, traces of pear and occasionally citrus fruit notes. The structure is very light, almost fragile when compared to other Italian grapes.
Americans now enjoy prosecco in lieu of cocktails due to the inspiring and relaxing effect of the light, fruity effervescence. Served alongside food, Tiziano Prosecco pairs well with light summer cuisine, sushi and mild Asian dishes.
