Prosecco Masterclass and Italian Party with ICCI

We enjoyed a fabulous curated Prosecco tasting and masterclass, plus an Italian Party to remember, from Italian Chamber of Commerce, Melbourne (who always put on the best events).

It was a joy to be guided through a @proseccoDOC tasting experience by sommelier Daniel Marcella, drawing from Prosecco from 8 extraordinary premium vineyards.

We learned Prosecco is a symbol of Italy, where there is a strong culture of drinking and making Prosecco.

All the Prosecco’s were top notch but Isola Augusta Prosecco Brut was my fav Prosecco with ripe peach and spicy elements that added complexity. Summertime with a Burrata salad would be a winner.

Daniel said “with every sip you are drinking Italy.” As he encouraged us, Prosecco is not just an aperitif but can be enjoyed on so many occasions.

We also explored the concept of “Italian Genio” with an esteemed panel of experts, including Tanja Barattin from the Consortium Prosecco DOC, Nina Leontaridis of Fiat/Alfa Romeo @fiataustralia, Gabriele Flisi from Smeg @smegaustralia, Rebecca Jackes from the Max Mara Fashion Group @maxmara, and Luca Ciano @cheflucaciano, Ambassador of Authentic Italian Products, serving as the MC.
