The classic cuvée from Zucchetto estate vineyards, in Valdobbiadene County hills. It’s probably the most versatile Prosecco sparkling, due to its well-balanced sugar residue.
Aromas of wisteria and lily blossoms merge into peach and apple hints; the mouth is creamy, butter and toasted nuts are present in this luxurious blend, notes of lively spice and aromatic herbs add to the complexity.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
One of my favourite white discoveries of last year; crisp, fresh and elegant with classic varietal character and a mouthwatering finish. - Chris Connolly
