Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco
This Prosecco is a DOC Spumante Extra Dry. Spumante simply means sparklilng in Italian, and Extra Dry is usually fruitier than a Brut. But in this case, this Prosecco is actually on the drier side, making it crisper and more food-friendly. Made of 100% Glera grapes in the province of Treviso, the grapes are handpicked in the vineyard before heading to the winery for temperature controlled fermentations. Look for ripe lemon, white flower, ginger and bread aromas followed by a crisp, thirst quenching palate of more citrus, flowers and green apple with hints of mint and minerals on the finish. Serve as an aperitif or with white fishes, shellfish, goat and sheep's milk cheeses and more...

'To lighten things up on Thanksgiving, have it with a glass of bubbly, such as Cavicchiolis 1928 Extra Dry Prosecco from Italy. The 1928 refers to the year the Cavicchioli family started to bottle the wine under its own name. This refreshing sparkler has just a touch of sweetness (extra dry in the sometimes odd parlance of wine) with apple, lemon and herb notes that will easily invite you to pour yourself another glass. Consider it as an aperitif before dinner as well.'
Wine EnthusiastThis simple sparkler opens with aromas of jasmine and citrus. The soft palate suggests pear, white peach and a hint of lemon zest alongside fresh acidity.
Wine SpectatorBright and balanced, this is a textbook Prosecco, with a lively bead carrying the flavors of white peach, sliced almond and candied lemon zest. Floral. Drink now.
