Winemaker's Notes:

An elegant and pleasant sparkling wine with a light golden straw color, delicate nose and fresh crisp taste of green apple. Its slightly sweet nature is balanced by moderate acidity and light bubbles.

Geographically, Prosecco is associated with the hills in the Northern region of Italy known as the Veneto region. The unique soils and micro- climates of the area are perfect for cultivating the Prosecco grape.

This wine was produced using the charmat method, in which secondary fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to guarantee a cleaner finish. Prosecco serves as an increasingly popular alternative to Champagne and is Italy's answer to refreshing, well-made sparkling wine at a reasonable price.
