Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore Brut Valdobbiadene D.O.C.G 2012
Citrussy and briochy on the nose with notes of apricot filled powdered doughnuts. This has a slightly buttery edge on the palate to the clean pear and peach toned fruits that are a touch sweet, yet regain a bit of snap on the finish. 86ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Tropical fruit nose, a bit of melon and orange flavor. Autolytic finish.
NV Prosecco. Nice brioche, vanilla and melba toast nose with good, consistent and rapid effervescence. Slight tropical fruit on the palate with a hint of almond bitterness and just a touch of sweetness. A very nice, relaxing sparkler to accompany the Stanley Cup semi-finals - if beer is to be avoided.
Nice starter to the Thanksgiving day festivities.
Bright and crsip prosecco, not bitter or acidic.
Very pale color. Crisp, flavorful, and very yeasty. A generous hint of sweetness. Quaffer, and not overly complex, but very pleasant. $30
Love it, received some good ratings from the wine magazines too. I had never tried Prosecco, but knew Santa Margherita. It is very easy to drink and great for parties!
Pears dominate on the nose. There's a little linolium on the tongue, but the fruit and acidity are at the forefront. Nice finish

Straw yellow in color. Aromas characterized by a fine fruity fragrance and an elegant long-lived perlage. It is pleasantly dry with a well-balanced acidity, which makes the wine fresh and lively.
This sparkling wine displays a fine, persistent perlage, while on the nose it offers attractive floral notes of peach and acacia blossom alongside delicate scents of reinette apples, all expressed with great cleanness and elegance. On the palate there is perfect harmony between the fresh and appealingly lively sensations and the roundness and delicacy of the fruit.
91 Points - Wine and Spirits Sparkling wine with a clean nose, pleasantly fruity, with whiffs of rennet apples and peach blossoms. Delicate, balanced taste.
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.
Sparkling wine with a clean nose, pleasantly fruity, with whiffs of rennet apples and peach blossoms. Delicate, balanced taste.
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 wine’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 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.
