La Marca Prosecco
Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Veneto, Italy
This sparkling wine is a pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white flowers. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.
Wine Spectator - "A delicate, well-balanced Prosecco, showing a good blend of baked apple, sour lemon and grapefruit, with a lightly creamy mineral texture on the palate. Medium froth, with some body and a pleasant lemon and mineral finish."

Notable FactsThe wine of Soave is most common white wine made here. Occasionally you can find an exceptional Soave, but for the most part the wine is easy-drinking and refreshingly pleasant. For the reds, the most popular are Amarone and Valpolicella – both made primarily from the good structured Corvina grape. While Amarone is always made in the recioto method (drying out the grapes to intensify the flavor), Valpolicella has a few different levels. Amarone is made from very ripe grapes, which are then dried and then pressed, producing an opulent, concentrated, full-bodied wine that has a distinctive and powerful taste that stays with you. Not for the lighter fare meal, this wine is almost port-like and delicious with cheese and/or dessert. Valpolicella can also be made in the recioto method, but it's more often found in a dry style – the wine goes up in rank, from Valpolicella to Valpolicella Classico to Valpolicella Classico Superiore. And finally, the bubbly of Veneto – Prosecco. Made from the same-named grape, Prosecco is less fizzy than Champagne and occasionally has a slight sweetness. It's absolutely delicious as a value aperitif.
A little ditty about Italy...This country has about as many wines as its had governments. With 20 different regions, hundreds of DOCs and even more indigenous varieties, the amount of wine made in Italy is mind-boggling. Most of the juice, however, remains in the country for thirsty Italians. Wine is food in Italy and its rare that a meal is consumed without a glass of vino. That said, it's not common to find many folks drinking wine without food either. In turn, it's a match, and a mighty good one at that. In fact, it's safe to say that Italian wine is a foodie wine – one that goes on the table for a myraid of meals.
For regions, the most popular are Tuscany (home of Chianti), Piedmont and the Tre-Venezie, which includes Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige and Friuli. Other communes of note are in Southern Italy, and a few good wines are made elsewhere in the country. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily are members of the Italian winemaking community as well.

A step up from the Caposaldo Prosecco.frank9 - Yonkers, NY45/3/2013J. McConnell - North Adams, MA43/13/201341/25/20134 stars on the Prosecco alone. If you take the price into account, I'd say almost 5 stars. Excellent value for beautifully crisp citrus-y sparkling wine that is not too sweet and lingers on the palate with light floral undertones.jaws346 - Niceville, FL311/27/2012411/16/2012$11 @ wine shop in charlotte.410/2/2012Rain Candy - Florence, SC59/10/201248/24/2012great sparkling and refreshing. Slighly fruity, but not overpowering. I also served this along side Mumm Champaigne and it did very well.goodtasteguide - Austin, TX57/11/2012Carol Williams - Cloudcroft, NM44/13/2012jbloore - Lockport, IL512/25/2011Bubbles tingle the tongue initially and quickly subside making way for a wonder touch of baked apple. The baked apple is quick and fades into sweet notes of grapefruit. This is an excellent prosecco; very well balanced - slightly sweet and dry but not extreme on either front.512/24/2011Excellent! Will order again!qbnhog - Alamo, TX412/8/2011512/9/2010I loved this wine. It was smooth, and airy, with hints of light fruitiness. I can't give it a high enough score. I would definitely purchase again.Augusta Cox - Oklahoma City, OK511/21/2010This wine is superb ALL palettes. For those new to wine, this wine provides a crisp slightly sweet taste. This wine is crisp and not overpoweringly sweet. More developed palettes will enjoy its crisp easy drinkability. This wine is dry enough for even the most experienced and discerning palatte. This wine will be loved by all!
Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
