Pale in color with nice mild nose of minerality and citrus notes. On the mid pallet this is another lovely prosecco displaying nice citrus notes to match the nose, and a hint of honeysuckle. The bubbles are nice and fine making this a wine that is very food friendly. I would put this wine anywhere you would a sauv blanc. Or just as a sipper before dinner. The wine is on the lighter side of medium in length with some nice mouth grip that builds nicely especially without food. There’s a hint of some acidity there but not in a bad way. I would give this a solid 89. For the money this is another great deal. For a guy (me) who doesn’t like bubbly I must say I am enjoying proseccos! Thanks to my Italian friends for introducing me to these and to their relatives for making them 🙂
