Prosecco = sparkling wine (sparkling wine) - that has always been mistakenly accepted by many consumers. But it is also pressed still wine from it. The name part "secco" has nothing to do with the Italian term for "dry". The far-reaching change adopted in 2009 by the Ministry of Agriculture had the aim of rendering the battered image of the many marketed as Prosecco Frizzante and Spumante restore. The years of flooding in Germany bottled discount Prosecco at dumping prices was thus ended. It also removed the confusion that also products outside the Prosecco range from other parts of Italy were marketed as Prosecco.
