Apples, apples, apples. Yes, this beautiful Italian sparkling is full of apples. Everywhere. And there is nothing wrong with this. Yellow apples in the nose with the pear hints. These apples are also in the taste. A little yeast on the tongue in the finish, but nicely balanced. A decent dryness in the mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. All-around well done. Quite like this one… and my cat loved liking the chilled bottle.

This Sparkling from Italy gives out a big sweet smell at first, but disappears after breathing, releasing some mild sourness, dryness and light sweetness from the grapes. The nose is quite well-balanced at that point. The taste unfortunately is not. Pretty mild tasting with the same as aromas but more apples than grapes. The sweetness does get stronger with time. Roasted and toasted notes in the finish. Light nutty yeast lingers. Alright, but not worth the price.

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.
