Prosecco

Prosecco is a sparkling wine made in Veneto, one of Italy's main producing regions, in the Northeastern part of the country, more specifically in the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano areas, which are named in the DOC appellations. The name is also often used for the grape used to make the wine, although the variety was officially renamed glera in 2009. Unlike champagne, Prosecco is almost always produced using the Charmat method, in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, making the wine less expensive to produce. This inexpensive character has been a key factor in Prosecco's fast-growing popularity in the last two decades. A few producers do make traditional method cuvées, using a second fermentation in bottle, or an even more traditional style called Col Fondo (with the bottom, litterally, or with the lees, more precisely), with some lees remaining at the bottom and making the wine slightly cloudy with a different flavor profile.
