Prosecco:Filiera Italia, Europe has lost another opportunity

Manager Scordamaglia, 'EU Commission's act is incomprehensible'

14 September, 17:35
(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 14 - "The way this Commission acts is incomprehensible. With exasperated and ideological enforcement of the green deal, the Commission risks destroying the European production in favor of third countries. Moreover, it acts based on law paragraphs against one of the products that best expresses excellence made of quality, history, and territory".

Luigi Scordamaglia, managing director of Filiera Italia, commented on the decision of the European Commission to give its consent to the publication in the EU Official Journal of the application to register the traditional name of the local Croatian wine, Prosek. This summer, there was news of the battle undertaken by Croatia to have the protection of the name recognized. A request, Filiera Italia underlined, has raised many criticisms, especially in our country, which is committed to defending the safety of the name Prosecco.

This request, Filiera Italia underlined, has raised much criticism, especially from our country committed to defending Prosecco against the scourge of Italian sounding. However, the Prosecco production is excellent and must be protected - he added - as in the first four months of 2021, it hit a record increase of 17% in exports. (ANSA).
