Bele Casel makes lights-out Prosecco and has been doing it better than almost anyone else for a long time. When I opened the doors at Restaurant Nicholas – I had exactly one Prosecco on my wine list… and you better believe it came from these guys.
Of course back in those days (don’t remind me how long it’s been) the category wasn’t nearly as popular as it is now. Now there’s an ocean of Prosecco. But a lot of them are too sweet or flabby and don’t offer the same great value they once did.
That is most definitely not true of Bele Casel. In fact, if anything, their excellence sticks out even more with so many mediocre bottles to go round.
Eric Guido of Vinous just reviewed a number of Bele Casel wines last week and lobbed heaps of praise for each and every one of them.

The NV Extra Dry Prosecco Superiore enchants with its sweetly scented blend of sweet flowers, confectioners sugar and tropical melon. It engulfs the palate with silken bubbles, creating an undeniable elegance while contrasting ripe orchard fruits with hints of candied citrus. A Chalky staining of minerality and pretty inner florals resonate, as this finishes with amazing length and freshness. This is an excellent entry into the Extra Dry category.
Bele Casel is an excellent wine for an aperitif. It’s dry, crisp and light which means it’s a perfect match for almost any food pairing and also fabulous to enjoy on its own.
Bele Casel is great with Prosciutto and other dried meats, stuffed mushrooms, creamy sauces, seafood and fried food!
