Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is definitely an easy sipper crowd pleaser! Surprisingly dry for this ‘extra dry’ Prosecco (Italian extra dry usually has some sweetness). Fruit forward on the nose - predominately pear and apple with hint of white flowers. Lively in the glass. All wrapped up in a distinctively attractive blue bottle. Pair with olive tapenade on fresh baguette. Tasted Dec 2017.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light citrusy grapefruit aromas and flavours with lots of fizz and a dry, nutty finish. Prosecco is a terrific way to enjoy a sparkling wine without breaking your wallet. A glass of Prosecco is a great way to kick off a party or dinner, and in Italy for toasting throughout the meal. Also makes an excellent gift for the hostess.
Tasted Nov. 2016
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very subdued white grapefruit and lemon aromas with a little minerality. The taste is crisp pear with a little almond, with fine bubbles. One of my favourite Prosecco pairings is calamari, and this would be perfect for it. Gorgeous blue bottle as well.
