Coldiretti, Prosecco 'copied' by many, among them Prosek

World's most imitated wine

14 September, 12:21
(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 14 - "The announcement of the registration of the traditional term "Prošek" made by the EU Commission is the tip of the iceberg of the attack underway against Prosecco, which is the most copied Italian wine in the world, where exports have exceeded 1 billion euros with an increase of 35% in the first six months of 2021". Coldiretti reported. The association of Italian farmers pointed out that the news comes just in conjunction with the start of the harvest set for mid-September in the Conegliano area, to reach the territories around Valdobbiadene by the end of the month. Coldiretti has unmasked Meer-secco, Kressecco, Semisecco, Consecco, and Perisecco from Germany on the shelves of supermarkets. Still, Whitesecco from Austria, Prosecco from Russia, and Crisecco from Moldova have arrived on the market. In contrast, in Brazil, in the Rio Grande area, several producers claim the right to continue using the name Prosecco under the agreement between the European Union and Mercosur countries. (ANSA).
