Our review: A pale yellow / straw in color and quite effervescent, this wine is very lightly scented with aromas of tree fruit (apples and pears). Exceptionally light on the palate, the fruit flavors, notably apple, come together with a bit of minerality and a touch of toasted nuts. It has an unexpected complexity that is quite enjoyable. There is, however, no finish to speak of.

Our rating: Proseccos are generally delightful wines and this one is no exception. Enjoy as an aperitif or with a fresh green salad or, as we did, with Asian-inspired appetizers. We rate it well Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "This wine has an intense fruity bouquet with a hint of golden apple. Brut, fresh and light in body, well-balanced and easy to drink."
