Piera Martellozzo started their Prosecco harvest, as well as for their colorless wine, last week with just a slight delay due to some rain – ‘but last year we had rain each day, so it’s completely different’ Bettini added.
Whereas this year there were concerns that volumes of Prosecco were running low, due to low number and higher demand, it appears quantities won’t be a problem http://1000-facts-about-wine.com for the 2015 vintage, according to Bettini.
‘At least there’s more quantity – everybody ran out of Prosecco [this year].’

Whilst Vini La Delizia are pleased with how the whole harvest is looking, they are particularly pleased with their colorless wines.
‘Now it’s warm during the days and a bit cold in the nights, the difference in warmth is very excellent for the perfumes of the whites,’ said D’Angelo.
‘We are expecting a excellent harvest, but especially for the whites.’
