What to Expect
The first known mention of the name "Prosecco" is attributed to the Englishman Fynes Moryson, who, visiting the north of Italy in 1593 notes: "Histria is devided into Forum Julii, and Histria properly so called... Here grows the wine Pucinum, now called Prosecho." He places Prosecco among the famous wines of Italy: "These are the most famous Wines of Italy. La lagrima di Christo and like wines neere Cinqueterre in Liguria: La vernazza, and the white Muskadine, especially that of Montefiaschoni inTuscany: Cecubum and Falernum in the Kingdom of Naples, and Prosecho in Histria."
The method of vinification, the true distinguishing feature of the original Prosecco, spread first in Gorizia then through Venice in Dalmatia, Vicenza and Treviso. In 1754, the word "Prosecco" appears for the first time in the book Il roccolo Ditirambo, written by Aureliano Acanti: "And now I would like to wet my mouth with that Prosecco with its apple bouquet."
