Our review: Yellow gold in color, this lightly sparkling wine has aromas of apricot and peach, with floral notes of apple blossom. Crisp and clean on the palate, the fruit flavors are quite flavorful, almost full-bodied, and ever so slightly sweet. There isn't much of a finish (nor is one really expected) but it does exhibit a dry toast sensation.

Our rating: This is a very nice, quite refreshing prosecco, and a delight to drink, either as an aperitif, sipping on a warm afternoon while reading (which is how we enjoyed ours), or with a light salad of mixed greens. But it's priced a bit on the high side for what it is. It rates well Above Average, but it's really not an exceptional value at $11; stock up on it if it's $9 or less.
