Emotivo, Prosecco DOC, Veneto, Italia, 11% abv.

When it burst onto the international scene post WW2, Prosecco was called the ‘poor man’s champagne’.  There’s nothing poor about this Prosecco.

Produced from Glera grapes, the Emotivo is clear and bright, pale lemon with a delicate and long lasting mousse. The nose is clean and youthful with light intensity and aromas of lemon zest, white grapefruit, pomelo and yellow apple.

The palate is ever so slightly off dry with medium plus acidity, medium body, medium minus alcohol and medium intensity with flavours of lemon drop, lime rind, pomelo and hazelnut. The finish is medium plus.

This is WSET Good Plus delicate fruit composition and mousse with a solid finish and refreshing acidity.  Drink now; not suitable for ageing.  Enjoy as we did with hors d’oeuvres.
