Fantinel Prosecco DOC Extra Dry NV 82 Points

A bright juicy offering made from Glera grapes, with plush texture certainly aided by the extra dry  rich style (higher sugar level), rather coarse bubbles prohibits higher ratings, for an otherwise well made sparkling wine, must be mentioned it is very well priced compared to other Prosecco available locally, available through Adriatic Shippings.
