This Italian Extra Dry Prosecco Sparkling starts off on a wrong note with the cork breaking at the bottom and leaving some pieces around the opening. The bottle is wider than most, so it holds well, but it pours all over. It does smell like cork a bit, but the yeast helps out. Sweet grapes with a little sourness. Even candy strawberries and vanilla after breathing. Pretty much the same for the taste. Not very dry, so goes down easily, but lacking a little blending between the sweetness, fruitiness and the light sourness. And the wood hints from the cork (even though not super corked) are not very pleasant.

Rating: 2.3/5
