Bellini Canella, the most famous cocktail of Venice

Casa Vinicola Canella is another family-run winery founded in 1947 by Luciano Canella in San Donà di Piave (VE) and immediately it is specialized in the production of sparkling wines, Prosecco and Spumante wines, given that this territory of origin tied it with this type of wine.
In 30 years, the company succeeded thanks to the production of Bellini, one of the most famous cocktail in the world. The interesting mix of 2 parts of Prosecco and 1 part of white peach pulp and a couple of drops of raspberry to give the characteristic pink colour, has created a good alternative for the aperitif. Moreover, it is good because the peaches come from the territories of the family in the area of San Donà di Piave, it has only 5% of alcoholic content and few calories. A quaffable and pleasant drink!
