Carpenè Malvolti 1868 Brut Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore

imageLCBO#: 727438
Price: $16.75
Made in: Conegliano, Italy
By: Carpenè Malvolti S.P.A.

The white head of this Italian Sparkling has longer retention than most. Yeasty nose with some sweetness and sourness from the grapes. Hints of honeydew after breathing and some burnt fruit skin. The taste is well-balanced with the fruits (grapes, apples), yeast (tartiness), sourness (citrus), sweetness and some decent dry mouthfeel. A good above-average Sparkling with just a little too much yeast lingering in the aftertaste, for our likings. Better for the price out there, but still good.
