MCC, Prosecco and sparkling wine – are they dif­fer­ent?

Fairlady - - WINE O’CLOCK -

• In cham­pagnes and MCCs, the sec­ondary fer­men­ta­tion – when the bub­bles form – hap­pens in the ac­tual bot­tle, after the bub­bly has been corked. • Prosec­cos un­dergo the sec­ondary fer­men­ta­tion in steel vats and are bot­tled after that. • Sparkling wines are sim­ply car­bon­ated wines – the bub­bles are ar­ti­fi­cially in­tro­duced rather than pro­duced by the wine it­self.
