BiancaVigna Prosecco Brut NV DOC NV

Vinous Media (91)- "The NV Prosecco Brut is spicy and wickedly fresh, with tart apple and chamomile complemented by notes of ginger and smoky minerals. It’s smooth with a creamy bead of delicate bubbles contrasted by nervous acids, coming across as quite savory and refined. Energy remains high, as the palate aches with residual tension while resonating on sweet and sour citrus and dried apricots. This beautiful and elegant expression of Prosecco is a pleasure to taste."

James Suckling (90)- "A dry and bright prosecco with aromas and flavors of sliced green apples and pears. Some slate, too. Medium body and a clean finish. Disgorged in 2017. Drink now."
