Date Tasted: October 5th, 2009
Tasting Notes: A refreshing treat of moderate complexity with a touch of residual sugar. The nose of this Northern Italian medium-bubbles sparkling wine offers pleasing aromas of orchard fruits. On the palate medium-plus acidity and citrus flavours of lemon and grapefruit peel dominate the low alcohol making this light-bodied wine a perfect hot-weather sipper. Or try it as a appetizing at Thanksgiving to wake-up the taste buds of your guests. Pair with antipasto or a fresh salad with prosciutto and dried-cranberries. - LC
