What are the different sweetness levels of Prosecco?

Prosecco, a sparkling wine beloved for its versatility and charm, offers a delightful range of sweetness levels, catering to a wide spectrum of palates. Understanding these levels is key to appreciating the subtle nuances that make Prosecco a favorite among sparkling wine enthusiasts.

Prosecco is categorized into several sweetness levels, each defined by the amount of residual sugar (RS) per liter. The International Sparkling Wine Scale provides a clear framework for these classifications:

Brut Nature (Very Dry Prosecco): 0-3 grams of RS per liter. This category represents the driest form of Prosecco, offering a crisp, clean taste with minimal sugar influence.

Extra Brut (Extra Dry Prosecco): Up to 6 grams of RS per liter. Slightly sweeter than Brut Nature, it still maintains a predominantly dry profile.

Brut: 0-12 grams of RS per liter. Brut is the most popular sweetness level, balancing dryness and perceptible sweetness.

Extra Dry: 12-17 grams of RS per liter. Contrary to the name suggests, Extra Dry Prosecco has more sweetness than Brut, making it approachable and enjoyable for a broader audience.

Dry (Sec/Secco): 17-32 grams of RS per liter. This level introduces a noticeable sweetness, making it ideal for those who prefer a sweeter sparkling wine.

Semi-Secco (Demi-Sec): Up to 50 grams of RS per liter. Semi-Secco offers a distinctly sweet profile, ideal for those who enjoy richer, more pronounced sugar notes in their wine​​​​​​​​.

Brands like Bella Principessa Prosecco and Signorina Prosecco masterfully embrace these sweetness levels, showcasing Prosecco’s diversity and adaptability.

Bella Principessa is committed to quality and tradition and often focuses on drier spectrums like Brut and Extra Brut, offering a refined and elegant experience.

Meanwhile, Signorina Prosecco Doc caters to a broader range of tastes, possibly including varieties like Extra Dry and Dry, perfect for those seeking a subtly sweeter sparkling wine.

In conclusion, the sweetness levels in Prosecco range from the very dry Brut Nature to the richly sweet Semi-Secco. This variety ensures that Prosecco suits every taste, occasion, and preference, exemplified by distinguished brands like Bella Principessa and Signorina Prosecco.
