Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore

Beautiful color of light straw with a touch of pale green. Gently sweet and fresh on the palate, this prosecco is extremely smooth and well balanced with a lovely fruity finish of mature golden apples. Very versatile, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif or sipped while enjoying a sweet bite at the close of a meal.
Bianca Vigna $14
Prosecco Brut 2014
Pleasantly full and creamy with notes of crisp green apple and pear. Brilliant pale yellow with green reflections. Perfectly paired with a variety of appetizers such as bruschetta, prosciutto and fig, and mini asparagus quiches as well as most seafood dishes. A fine finish to a meal alongside a fruit and cheese platter.
Prosecco Gancia $15
An elegant sparkling wine. Light yellow with a touch of green. Fresh, smooth and well balanced with a fruity finish of ripe golden apples.
