Prosecco is native to Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, in Italy’s affluent north. The latter region is home to the wine’s namesake hometown, ‘Prosecco’. Here, the Glera grape variety is carefully cultivated in local vineyards. While prosecco’s global adoration is a relatively new phenomenon, the Glera grape has been used to make wine since Roman times. Pliny the Elder was supposedly a fan of an early iteration of the sparkling wine, discussing the health-giving properties of its signature fizz. Though we must admit: in our experience the accuracy of the scholar’s claim is dubious at best.
Purported medicinal properties aside, prosecco lends its pleasant, crisp flavour to our luxuriant tortelloni, which sees the fizz paired with succulent gamberi (prawns) and creamy courgette, known as ‘zucchine’ in its native Italy. We elevate this flavoursome dish with a zesty lemon butter and lemon pangrattato. Best enjoyed with an additional glass of prosecco, allow this special dish to transport you to Italy, albeit vicariously, but by the most luxurious of means.
