Monique Ippolito Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Prosecco with floral finesse. Intense citrus blossoms, orange zest, juicy pink grapefruit and crisp pink lady apple take over the nose and the palate. Loads of zesty acidity and a lasting citrus finish. This wine makes a great aperitif and would definitely pair well with smoked salmon canapés among other party nibbles.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Prosecco is always quite a good deal in terms of quality and price, this one is no exception. Flora notes mixed with citrus, red apple, some minerality and medium acidity make this a great value sparkling. Very tasty and refreshing all on it's own or with some appetizers.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This refreshing sparkler has flavours of ripe pear, green apple, delicate blossom and ripe peach. The delicate mousse carries the flavours on the refreshing finish.
Pair with summer salads or kettle chips!
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 2014.
Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Citrus, grapefruit and granny smith apple - a melange of light crisp fruit shine from this Prosecco. A pleasant mouth feel with lots of bubbles! A chilled glass on a hot summer day with chocolate dipped strawberries is a great treat!
The picturesque Prosecco Superiore DOCG region, located between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, is filled with sloped vineyards that naturally produce low yields of prime Prosecco (aka Glera) grapes. This sparkler offers enticing peach, pear, apple and mineral character with a faint suggestion of sweetness. Finishes clean, crisp and refreshing. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews April 2013

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
