Our review: Green apple aromas with distinct herbal notes are exhibited by this lightly sparkling wine. Initially very slightly sweet on the palate, a toasty flavor profile develops giving the wine a "champagne"-like character. There is also some minerality present. The finish is surprisingly long, unexpected for this varietal.

Our rating: Just in time for the New Year celebrations, this delightful prosecco will make a satisfactory, and much less expensive, alternative to more traditional bubblies. Serve very chilled and enjoy! We rate this wine Above Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "Pale straw yellow with greenish shades. Fruity, with a rich scent of fruit, especially of unripe apples, lemons and grapefruits. It has a pronounced aroma of wisteria in bloom and acacia flowers. It has a pleasantly acid, fresh flavour. Full-bodied, it has a pleasant and harmonious taste characteristic."
