Bottega, Il Vino dei Poeti, Prosecco DOC, Treviso, Italia, 11% abv, C$18

Glera – grape of the ever popular and reasonably priced Italian sparkling wine Prosecco.  This selection is perfect for appetizers, brunches, lunch time or summer sipping.  Prosecco dei Poeti

With its fizzy, persistent mousse, this bubble is the palest lemon colour.  On the nose, it shows light aromas of almonds, vanilla pod and soft lemon.

The palate is dry with juicy acidity, light alcohol and flavours of bitter almond, frothy lemon meringue, yellow pear and Golden delicious apple.

Showing a moderate finish, this is a simple but delicious bubble.  Enjoy, but not with strawberries – they’re only in the picture for colour!
