Wine Review: Although this may not be the most exciting Prosecco, there is one thing they have done right and that is to make a consistent product with each and every batch. Where it seems that some producers tweak their recipe, Lamarca has found one that works and has regularly hit a home run with it. Light notes of peach and papaya pop out of the glass, as you watch the small bubbles float up. The palate is fizzy, and not as much bubbly, but it's this fizz that allows the notes of apples, pears, and kumquats to dance across your tongue. With a medium finish, you can't go wrong choosing this for your next party. Pairs great with friends. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: This sparkling wine is pale, golden straw in color. Bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose, the wine brings fresh citrus with hints of honey and white floral notes. The flavor is fresh and clean, with ripe citrus, lemon, green apple, and touches of grapefruit, minerality, and some toast. The finish is light, refreshing, and crisp.

Organic status: not organic
