Our review: Light gold in color, this sparkling wine has aromas of pineapple and orange blossom. Very flavorful and dry on the palate, the fruit flavors are nicely balanced. Some minerality is introduced into the finish which itself has light nut-like characteristics.

Our rating: We enjoyed our wine with fresh fruit at an outdoor brunch. It's a nice, safe choice but not exceptional. Still, we rate it Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "A captivating, aromatic fragrance, typical pear and melon fruit flavors." (From the bottle label.)

Winery website: Gancia. The image of the bottle is similar though somewhat different from the wine we reviewed.
