This prosecco has been given good reviews, and rightfully so. Bubbly being underrated, I jumped at the opportunity to drink it. I think a special occasion like a Wednesday night is perfect for a prosecco. As soon as I popped the cork, I could smell the typical fruits and pears expected from a brut. The front palate was light, with flavors of spring greens and fruits. The mid-palate had hints of mandarin oranges, which matured into green apples. The most pleasing part of this wine was the finish - it had nice minerality with a bit of crisp slate. At $14,99, it was definitely a great buy.

Santa Margherita has taken great strides to break into different wines other than its flagship Pinot Grigio. This Extra Dry Prosecco Superiore shows quality and personality with slightly sweet touches of grapefruit and peach spread throughout.

Prosecco di Valdobbiadene is undeniably one of today’s best-known and most highly-appreciated italian wines. This one shows a clean nose with whiffs of delicious apples and peach blossoms. Famous for their Pinot Grigio, Santa Margherita shows a fine touch with Prosecco. Wine & Spirits Magazine scored it 91 points saying "The texture of this wine deftly balances the richness of ripe stone fruit with the grip of fruit skins, like apple and apricot. A hint of white pepper adds subtle complexity, while the finish feels fresh and elegant. Try it with toasted almonds."

Frothy bubbles and a luminous color set the stage for this lively Prosecco redolent of peachy cream and white mineral. The carbonation is pungent and direct and underlines the winersquo;s fruity flavors and bright acidity. Santa Margherita is one of only two producers permitted to bottle DOC Prosecco despite the fact they are located outside the DOC zone.

The lemon-lime nose is true to form, and the palate is perfectly zesty, with citrus dominating a full package of Prosecco-like flavors. Slightly sweet later on, which carries the finish. Plucky and solid.

Mildly toasty, with hints of bread dough in addition to crisp white fruits. the palate is lean but pleasing, with pineapple, peach and apple. Finishes moderately long, with some talc. Tangy and tasty overall.

Therersquo;s a smoky undercurrent to this Prosecco, and crunchy acidity shapes the green pear, lemon zest and spring blossom notes on the frothy mousse. The finish features a light, toasty hint. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Straw yellow. AROMA Lively vinosity characterized by a fine fruity fragrance and an elegant long-lived perlage. TASTE It is pleasantly dry with a well-balanced acidity, which makes the wine fresh and lively. Length/Type of Fermentation: The base wine is put into pressurized tanks for the prise de mousse. There it ferments for 18-20 days, with the aid of selected yeasts, at a controlled F10 temperature between 14° and 16° C (57° - 61° F). When the desired pressure has been obtained (around 6 bars), the wine is chilled to - 4° C in order to arrest the fermentation and encourage stabilization. The sparkling wine is then kept at a controlled temperature of 8°-10° C (46°-50° F) for at least a month. Length/Type of Aging: 1 month of bottle aging
