Legend has it that each morning in Old Venice, a wine vendor would set up his cart at the foot of the famous Campanile in Piazza San Marco... the bell tower in St Mark’s square. Through the day, as the sun beat its way across the piazza cobblestones, he would move to stay in the bell tower’s shadow – ombra, in Italian – making sure his wine kept cool and fresh. To this day, ask any Venetian tavern-keeper for “two shadows” – “Dame do ombre!” – and he’ll know exactly what you mean...two small chalice-glasses of fine Prosecco (you’ll never ask for just one ombra, because it is always to be shared with a friend). Fresh, crisp and dry, this authentic Prosecco from the Province of Treviso is as rewarding as that welcoming patch of breezy shade on a sweltering summer’s day..
