Taste profile from the winemaker: "This sparkling wine is produced in full respect of ancient traditions, using Prosecco grapes grown on the Veneto hills. It is characterised by a fine, light perlage and a fresh and aromatic perfume. It is perfect both as an aperitif and as an accompaniment to light dishes."
ABC Wines review: Very lightly sparkling, this wine has a floral, mixed fruit aroma. The palate is quite fruity with a nicely balanced acidity. The finish has considerable mineral character but is pleasing nonetheless. Our score: A fun wine that can be served as an aperitif or with a crisp summer salad. Above Average.
