He said: Chilled before drinking. Slightly cloudy, light wheat straw color. Strong yeasty aroma with hints of peach blossoms and spring bulbs in bloom. Smooth light effervescent mouth-feel; spirited fresh baked bread and just picked Kieffer pear flavors, very dry and quite yeasty on the finish that precedes a very long dry aftertaste. Very pleasant with the quiche, excellent with the fruit desert and good sipping alone. This is dramatically different from run-of-the-mill mass produced “Charmat” Prosecco and it gets two thumbs up from me. Distinctive Prosecco that’s an excellent value.
She said: Light golden color, clear on the first pour cloudy thereafter. Pleasant yeasty nose fades on the palate with a medium body with a smooth, dry mouth-feel that was unique to most Prosecco we have had in the past. The finish was long and had a slight hint of yeast as it ended. It was delicious with the ham and Swiss cheese in the quiche and I would choose it again in a heartbeat. Wonderful “Col Fondo” Prosecco that I highly recommend..
