Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An elegant Prosecco with typicity. Charmât bubbles at an accessible price point. Well balanced moderate fruit, acidity, alcohol, with a hint of minerality, a medium finish and persistence of lemon lime zest. Tasted June 2017. 88 points
Specially crafted for the 150th Anniversary of Italy’s unification. Pale straw Prosecco fizz with a fine mousse. On the nose, look for mandarin orange, mineral and pear. Dry to a hint off-dry with an upfront fruity freshness. Very good mouth-feel and a fairly substantial finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel
