Personal Notes

Someone else's review:

A pleasant wine with taosty aromas of light peach, grapefruit and orange blossom. Similar on the palette but also nuanced with melon, quince, cream and a heavy chalky minerality. The finish is very bitter almond, almost too much so. Nice, but not a cocktail wine. Try to eat something with it to balance the almond finish.

This is a wonderful sparkling Italian wine. I try to keep a few bottles on hand just for a light and refreshing drink with friends and family. An unbelievable price. This is a bit sweeter than most sparkling wines but not too sweet. Slight lemony flavor. A perfect summer porch drink.
