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.
