Santa Margherita Prosecco
from Veneto, Italy
Nestled in the hills of the eastern Veneto is one of the most wonderful wine growing regions - the Valdobbaidene. In April 2010 this small area was established as a DOCG region, the highest quality level that can be given to an Italian wine. Glera (formerly known as Prosecco) grapes are grown on the steep hillsides, 100% hand-harvested, and crafted into the prized Santa Margherita Prosecco DOCG. With peach and apple aromas, this fresh and balanced sparkling wine has fine perlage with a refreshing finish. Prosecco di Valdobbiadene is excellent as an aperitif, ideal with seafood dishes and after meals with light desserts.
The color is straw yellow, with an
aroma that has a lively vinosity characterized by a fine fruity fragrance and an elegant long-lived mousse. On the palate the wine tastes pleasantly dry with a well-balanced acidity, making the wine fresh and lively.

Love this with a special dinner especially poultry. Crisp and delish ice cold! Also nice with a cheese and fruit plate!
My boyfriend and I tried this with the thought that we might have a trio of Italian wines at our wedding reception. It most definitely did not make the cut. We each had a glass and decided to stop the bottle and open another. It is still in our fridge. I don't think we will bother with it now. It was fizzy, I'll give it that.
you order a specfic kind of wine & request no subs, but they sub you out anyway. i called about this & was assured it was the same, but the taste was not there

For me Prosecco is the best wine to start my afternoon. I tried this prosecco since Santa Margherita produces my favorite Pinot Grigio and I was amazed by the flavor of this prosecco, yes it´s a litlle bit more expensive than some other proseccos, but believe me you are going to taste the best prosecco. It has the right stability, the right acidity and the right dryness, you'll love it.

As a true lover of sparkling wines, I ordered the bubbly combo from wine.com that included 6 different bottles of "champagnes". This Italian one one the very best in it's taste and it's ability to stand alone or with delicate snacky type foods. I bought up all that was left and have turned on my dearest friends to it. Now they know what to get me for a gift, too! AAAAA+
