Brussels, August 20 - The newly appointed European
Commissioner for Consumer Protection, Croatian diplomat Neven
Mimica, on Friday told ANSA that efforts would be made to
distinguish Italian prosecco and Croatian prosek wines for
consumers and to give each its due.
Italian prosecco is a dry, sparkling white wine made in the
Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia regions using the Charmat
method, where second fermentation takes place in steel tanks, as
opposed to bottles used in the classical sparkling wine method.
The Croatian prosek is a sweet red dessert wine, made with
dried grapes and traditionally produced in the southern Dalmatia
region.
High quality prosek can be more expensive than other wines
because it requires seven times the volume of grapes.
"The commission's services are engaged in discussions to
ensure that there is clarity" between Italian prosecco and
Croatian prosek wines, Mimica told ANSA.
"There are very clear rules regarding wines.
"As a consumer, I know that the two wines are two very
different products, and I appreciate both".
