EU minister vows clarity between prosecco and prosek

Brussels, August 20 - The newly appointed European Commissioner for Consumer Protection, Croatian diplomat Neven Mimica, on Friday told ANSA that efforts would be made to distinguish Italian prosecco and Croatian prosek wines for consumers and to give each its due. Italian prosecco is a dry, sparkling white wine made in the Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia regions using the Charmat method, where second fermentation takes place in steel tanks, as opposed to bottles used in the classical sparkling wine method. The Croatian prosek is a sweet red dessert wine, made with dried grapes and traditionally produced in the southern Dalmatia region. High quality prosek can be more expensive than other wines because it requires seven times the volume of grapes. "The commission's services are engaged in discussions to ensure that there is clarity" between Italian prosecco and Croatian prosek wines, Mimica told ANSA. "There are very clear rules regarding wines. "As a consumer, I know that the two wines are two very different products, and I appreciate both". (photo: prosecco vineyard in Italy)
