Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Crystal clear, light wheat straw color. Ripe apple and slight floral aromas. Smooth as silk apple, pear and honey taste with hints of mineral as it continues and ends with a slight creaminess and fine bubbly effervescence. VERY DELICIOUS Prosecco that’s just a tad sweeter than we usually drink, but it’s so delicate and easy drinking I’d call it MEMORABLE. A wonderful Prosecco that’s food friendly and superb drinking alone. If you try it, you’ll love…guaranteed!!!

    She said: Great prosecco that smelled and tasted as good as it looked. Its fresh aroma and taste led to a light body and long clean finish. With a hint of sweetness, it complemented the blueberries but played well with the cheeses too. A fantastic bargain wine at $14.40.
