Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A delicious sparkling DOCG Prosecco from one of the oldest wineries in Veneto. It's said this was the "first" Prosecco made in the area - hence the "1868".

Pale straw yellow with aromas of green apple, pear and citrus. Delightful effervescence with fine persistent bubbles. Medium acidity with a medium-long finish.

I'm travelling to the Conegliano area soon and hope to be able to tour the winery and hear more about their history.

Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light straw in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This sparkling wine features fresh apple/pear or stone fruit with a touch of toasty pistachio and limestone aromas. Really perky acidic and mineral flavours, with a spritz of lime and zesty grapefruit. It's light-medium bodied, soft and with a hint of sweetness then lemony acidity and some nuttiness on the finish. Good citrusy finish. Well priced. Serve well chilled.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon colour with a green hue. Crisp acidity, toasty notes of brioche, nuts, baked bread as well as citrus and green apple. Great value! Cheers! Makes a great ice breaker at your next party.
Tasted: February 2016
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Vibrant bubbles, pale straw, crisp, fresh and enticing. This prosecco is dry with mouthwatering acidity and pairs well with aperitif, fried calamari, or for toasting on its own. Citrus peel, tart Mayer lemon, green apple and a hint of hazelnut on the palate. Tasted Nov 2016 rated 88/100 - a crowd pleaser for festive or special occasions.
This Italian sparkling wine, a dry Prosecco, is made from grapes grown in the appellation of Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. Serve at 8-10 oC. Very dry from start to finish. - Community Wine Reviews
