Prosecco Frizzante DOC Villa Domiziano
A frizzante - lightly sparkling - Prosecco with a cork closure, requiring a corkscrew to open, but still goes off with a pop! This style of Prosecco has always been popular with the Italians as an aperitif or a summer drink, and it's now growing quickly in popularity in the UK too. Lovely flavours with a degree of sweet fruit, full in the mouth, with a really dry crisp finish. Well balanced acidity too. This is a very enjoyable summer wine, give it a try!
"Until a few years ago, Glera was mainly known as ‘Prosecco’. It is a white wine grape variety used to make sparkling wine. Prosecco is a region located in Veneto in northwest Italy. Most Prosecco wines are meant to be enjoyed young and fresh. Pure and energised on the nose with gentle yet enticing citrus and flavours of sliced apple. Clean mineral finish with a light fizz. The palate has a lovely soft texture, mildly sweet with a touch of peach on the finish and great balance. Fresh and light."
