This Italian Sparkling wine is always a good one to get at the LCBO. Brunello Imports makes it easy to get this in Ontario. Aromas are sweet and fruity with apples and hints of pears. Thankfully, the taste is not as sweet. Just fruitiness with some decent dryness. Yeast lingers on the tongue. This bubbly is nothing too crazy, too out of this world… but very well-balanced overall.

Rating: 3.6/5

Celebrating our first day on the deck of 2015. It’s been a long, bad winter. This makes us happy. Along with the sun, this Sparkling gives out aromas of yeast, but the apples take over quickly. The same fruit is found in the taste well-blended with the grapes. Starts sweet, goes through some sourness to finish a little dry with some yeast tart on the tongue. An easy drinking, well-balanced above average Sparkling. Well recommended for a group bubbly gathering.

Last week, we tried another Sparkling from the same region, and this one is pretty close to it. Aromas a little sweeter with some honey over the apples and mild yeast in the background. The taste is sweet, but not as much as the nose. Made to drink colder, like the previous. Apples, honeydew and yeast in the finish. Easy to consume and to present at a gathering.

Written 100% Glera grapes on the back label, AKA Prosecco grapes, for this Italian Sparkling. The nose is mild, but very well-balanced between the sweet fruits, the sourness and the hints of yeast. The taste is stronger, with some apples and notes of pears, all mixed with light sourness in the middle, a fruity sweet finish with some blended bitterness, adding dryness. Yeast eventually lingers in the aftertaste. Overall, a pretty good, easy-drinking Sparkling. Just wish there would be less yeast in the end. Beautiful aromas though. and bottle.
