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.
This was every bit as wonderful as I expected it to be, mild and fruity. Very nice for a Saturday afternoon treat.
Love this with a special dinner especially poultry. Crisp and delish ice cold! Also nice with a cheese and fruit plate!
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
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.
