Prosecco - WineSkinny.com/ Easy to like, with its light, crisp apple and peach aromas and flavors. Worked on its own, but also in a POM bellini!

Lunetta Prosecco - 87 Points & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits/ More mineral than fruity, this is nutty, soft and easy to drink. Its bubbles will melt right into smoky speck.

Lunetta Prosecco - Wall Street Journal / ...Other favorites included the Lunetta from Cavit…whose Prosecco was a delightful surprise. This tastes the most like Champagne to me. .. this crisp, refreshing Prosecco, made in the Trentino region from hand-harvested grapes, is an excellent buy.

/ Very tangy nose with aromas of ripe apple and peach. Delicate palate, good freshness with biscuity flavors. With its low acidity and alcohol, this prosecco would work perfectly as an aperitif.
