TASTING NOTE: Quite a vibrant yet mineral expression of upper-tier Prosecco here with both power and finesse. Intense green pear core is shot through with steely, stony minerality that tapers to a long, slow finish of white mushroom and lime. Bright acidity hides some residual sugar so it tastes drier than it is - and perfectly balanced. Much concentration and complexity for the price. Serve it with fish or seafood - ideally, grilled sardines on toast. Score - 92 (Carolyn Evans Hammond, thestar.com, May 16, 2016) Price $ 19.95
