Prosecco, the traditional venetian wine, is the white one produced in Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It became known in the 1990s as Prosecco IGT. This is a sparkling wine and his bubbles are also excellent with cured meats, especially those with a more harmonious taste, such as cooked ham and mortadella. Spicy hams and blue or overripe cheeses should be avoided.
