Prosecco is made from the grape Glera but there’s plenty of moves happening to make Prosecco the legal name, thereby meaning that it can only come from near Trieste in the north east of Italy. Legal stoushes and naming confusion aside, Prosecco is best served in flutes to keep the effervescent stream bubbling away. Anyways, some investigation sees that as being produced by mega producer Zonin. Exclusive to Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores in Australia.
Borgo SanLeo, Prosecco Brut, DOCG, NV
Safe, easy nose of nutty, creamy nougat aromas with baked lemon tart and some sweet yellow box honey. Finishes with a distinct metallic note. Super tart on the palate with somewhat clumsy teeth aching acidity overlaying light doughy characters. There’s some bright citrus and good fizzy mousse, finishing slightly nutty. It’s perfectly made for mixing: So grab your Aperol and get your spritz on.
