Wine Description

Great wine for Thanksgiving! Prosecco, the name of a perfumey grape as well as a lightly fizzy, refreshing sparkling wine from Italy, can be absolutely beautiful but also complete crap. Shopping by name or specific region is imperative and Martini and Rossi is always consistent (you might have heard of their sweet Asti Spumante? Not the same thing). For Prosecco, the bubbles are introduced using the Charmat method .

Winemaker Notes: Refreshingly dry, slightly sparkling w/ hints of apple, peach & vanilla. Enjoy w/ appetizers & light entrees.

Complex bouquet w/ scents of golden apple, ripe pear & peach. Fruit aromas carry through on to the palate. Medium-bodied & dry, w/ crisp, refreshing acidity. Delicious on its own or paired w/ salads, light appetizers, grilled fish & vegetable dishes.
