This Italian sparkling wine is made from the classic grape for Prosecco, Glera. This is a lovely, refreshing bubbly with notes of ripe peach, yet it's dry. Great mouth-feel and rich texture. Perfect as a chilled aperitif or companion to seafood.

Prosecco Superiore D.O.C.G. Brut Rive Di Manzana food pairings: smoked salmon mini bagel sandwiches, antipasto platter, buttered popcorn, lightly salted potato chips, Italian panettone.

An outstanding sparkling for all occasions.…
Presentation: A modern, classy label, a twist on the Medieval, with a nice-looking bottle shape
Appearance: Pale lemon
Nose: Medium-pronounced nose with notes of tropical and citrus fruit (pears, white peaches, lemon), honey
Taste: Dry, light body, low-medium acidity, low tannins, and delightful, effervescent, tiny, sharp bubbles, with lemon, lemon rind, pears, apricots
Finish: long lemon finish
Overall impression: A lovely sparkling wine made in the Charmat method. Great for Sunday brunch or to cleanse the palate or just to enjoy on its own.
Value: 4.5/5
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful bouquet of apricot, melon, and honey transform to a zippy citrus finish, with persistent and elegant bubbles.
An exceptionally well-priced Prosecco for such amazing quality.
Beautiful with soft cheeses... or to toast your next big celebration!
Tasted March 2018.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A very high quality Prosecco that shows you the strength in the world's fastest growing sparkling wine category.
This particular one is not only a DOCG (the highest guaranteed quality tier), but also a rare millisimato.

It may say extra dry on the label, but that actually means it has a bit more sugar than brut styles. A touch of residual tends to bring out the lovely white fruit of glera (the main prosecco varietal).
Bone white, great fizziness.
Super pretty aromatics of white flower, honey, nectarine, and peach.
It has great refreshing acidity, with more white fruit, pear, pineapple, and honey.
This is a great example of what top Prosecco delivers. Drink it with literally anything. Sparkling is a "cheat" pairing and goes with most anything, from steak chimichurri to popcorn.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A delightful full and crisp Prosecco with delicate fine bubbles. The bouquet evolves a little bit with green honeysuckle florals, yellow pears and touches of sugar snap peas. Flavours echo these notes with the addition of green apples and delicate minerals. Light and crisp, a good pairing with charcuterie and a birthday party! 92 points. - Tasted March 11th, 2018
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Great value sparkling wine with apple and stonefruit aromas and flavors with a hint of toasted biscuit on the palate. Pair with buttered popcorn or smoked salmon. Tasted March 2018.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

What a beauty! I walk past Prosecco much too often and I'm so glad I took a shot at the Mani Sagge. Aromas show delightfully prominent citrus blossom, peach, apricot and honey notes. The palate is scrumptious and fruity. It's a beautiful Prosecco and quite fun to pair with sushi or sashimi.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A friend started importing this wine recently. Once tasted, I ordered a case on the spot. Lovely for the summer, with citrus, white peach, green apple, and lemon-lime soda. Great mouthfeel. Buy it by the case...I did. 91 Points.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicate, rich and totally delightful! Notes of white peach, ripe pear and brioche with luscious, creamy mouthfeel and persistent mousse.
Celebrate any occasion with this lovely Prosecco Superiore.
Tasted Sept. 2020
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Apple and apricot on the nose with flavours of peach, apple and white cranberry. Would go well with your next brunch!

Tasted March 13, 2018.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A nice dry bubbly perfect for your next celebration. Small, crisp bubbles, lots of white peach, lemon zest and a hint of honey and some toasty bread. Lots of fruit on the palate, with a nice effervescence that extends the flavours on the finish. Pair with oysters (any seafood really) or some kettle cooked potato chips. Cheers!
Fresh and crisp with mineral notes and green apple on the nose and palate.
This wine is from Tenuta Mani Sagge, once a ruined wine estate that is being brought back to life. Grown in the Prosecco Superiore hills of Conegliano - a UNESCO site.
