The story of Bellini begins in Venice in 1948, when peach juice and prosecco were mixed to create a refreshing summer drink. Named after the Venetian born artist Giovanni Bellini, who painted the sensuous colours of the Italian renaissance, the drink soon became fashionable worldwide. Forty years later the Canella family, already a successful Prosecco producer, and also a Vino Italiano selection, took up the challenge of producing the famous cocktail to satisfy its popular demand.
The Bellini cocktail is composed of two parts sparkling wine, one part white peach juice and pulp from select, perfectly ripe peaches and a few drops of wild raspberry. Its natural ingredients are grown in the Venetian countryside; the delicate white peaches are handpicked when fruit is perfectly ripe, so as to maximize concentration of sugar and aromas.
A classic aperitif, its intoxicating peach fragrance is best enjoyed quite cool, even slightly chilled. Ideally, do not store the bottle too long, in order to enjoy its peachy freshness to the full.
