GENERAL ASSESSMENT (1)

  • Overall Quality = Good
  • Bottle Aging =
    • Can be kept at around 8°C for up to 2 years
    • Will not gain from aging
  • Retail Price = 29 euros (France retail price, incl. taxes)
  • Value for Money = At the right price
  • Comparison with same price competition = Very good for a Prosecco
  • Suitability for Diabetics = Not suitable
  • Service Temperature = around 8°C
  • Suggested Food & Wine Pairing = Top quality Oysters, Asiago (Italian Cheese), quality Pâté, antipasti
  • Comments = we can feel its quality compared to many Prosecco (Cartizze being the best sub-zone), however, the lack of complexity in aromas (mainly green apple with no secondary or tertiary aromas) together with its Medium length of finish prevent a final grade above B (which is still a very good grade for a Prosecco). The most interesting thing regarding this will probably lie in the food pairing, given the large bubbles. It would probably pair better with heavier starter fish than other traditional method wines while also providing more quality than many tank method wines.
  • Final Grade = B

Wine is a gourmet treasure, do not abuse alcohol!
