Wine Review: This is another easy-drinking Prosecco. The apricots and peaches are present, as they should be. Along with these stone fruits are notes of ginger snaps, tamarind, and lemon zest. This sparkler has an interesting mix of sweet and spicy flavors that keeps the palate on edge wondering what flavor will pop up next. The fruit flavors don't hold on as well as the spicy flavors making the finish medium in length and just slightly disjointed. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow with green reflections, this Prosecco imparts a fruity bouquet, with hints of golden apples. The palate is lush and fruity with balanced minerality on the finish.

Organic status: not organic

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Vino Dei Fratelli Prosecco.

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
