COLOUR Bright pale straw-yellow; a fine, clear mousse with a very delicate perlage. BOUQUET Attractively intense; very fruity and aromatic, with hints of wisteria flowers and Rennet apples. FLAVOUR Very well-balanced and appealing, with the extremely delicate almond note that is typical of Glera grapes.
Wine & SpiritsThe best bubbly in the Zonin portfolio. The nose is yeasty, with moderate richness and enough apple and citrus to register. The palate features green melon, apple and toast, while the finish is mildly yeasty and fairly full. Satisfying as it fills the mouth.
