A Quick Overview of La Marca Prosecco

La Marca Prosecco

La Marca Prosecco is made from the thin-skinned Glera grape. It’s produced by the La Marca winery, named after the historical city of La Marca Trevigiana (March of Treviso.) 

La Marca is a cooperative of nine wineries from the Prosecco DOC region and a few from the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG region. In 2007, it became the only producer in the Prosecco region with a wine in the ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ list of Wine Spectator.

La Marca predominantly produces three styles of Proseccos:

  • La Marca Prosecco: This Prosecco varietal is La Marca’s basic sparkling wine. The bubbly has a golden straw color with beautiful floral and fruity notes.
  • La Marca Prosecco Rosa: La Marca Prosecco Rosa is a blend of 89% pure Prosecco and 11% Pinot Noir. The gorgeous coral pink wine has a dynamic palate of Prosecco-like floral notes and classic Pinot Noir flavors.
  • La Marca Luminore Prosecco Superiore: This is the most superior blend under the La Marca brand. The grapes for the Luminore label are sourced from the Conegliano Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G. 

The intense apple, sweet citrus, and creamy peach notes result in a wine with a heavier mouthfeel than the other two styles.

The specifications for producing the Superior sparkling wine are:

  • The wine grapes must be grown in steeper vineyard regions.
  • They must come from low-yielding vines and have a concentrated flavor.
  • Wine blends should be made with a higher percentage of Glera grapes. 

Besides enjoying its spectacular varietal and blended styles, you can also craft exquisite bubbly cocktail drinks like the Mimosa with a La Marca Prosecco!

La Marca Prosecco Vineyards And Winemaking

La Marca

The Glera grapes for La Marca Prosecco are sourced from the 9000-hectare vineyards in the Prosecco DOC region.

The different stages of the Prosecco winemaking are: 

  • The hand-harvested grapes are crushed and pressed in gentle membrane presses. 
  • Next, the extracted juice is cold-settled, followed by an initial fermentation in stainless steel tanks
  • The wine then undergoes a second fermentation in the tanks, which enhances its texture, aromatics, and acidity. This is known as the Charmat method - distinct from the traditional method in which the secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle.
  • Finally, the fermented Prosecco is filtered and bottled after adding the precise dosage (sugar solution) for sweetness. 

Besides Glera, the La Marca vineyards also produce Pinot Noir, Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Verduzzo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grape varieties.
