Glera is the main grape used in Prosecco and must be used in a minimum of 85%. Often it is the solo variety in Prosecco. It was previously known as Prosecco but this name is no longer legally permitted, however some Australian produces still call it by this name. It is mostly grown in the north-east Italy and mainly for the production of Prosecco. Generally, it produces semi aromatic wines with floral, stone fruit and pear flavours.
