DOCG Prosecco Superiore “Costa d’Oro”
How it’s made: made of 100% Glera grapes, Scandolera’s winemakers follow a rigorous process to produce their Prosecco. It is made using the Charmat method.
Where it’s from: from the hills between the Italian towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, an area synonymous with the world’s best Proseccos.
How it tastes: with Prosecco’s trademark floral notes on the nose, on the palate it’s a balanced wine with just the right amount of acidity. A refreshing wine perfect for the fresh days of early spring.
How to drink it: drink this wine cold – eight degrees Celsius is ideal. Fresh and complex, this refined Prosecco is delicious with risottos.
Domaine de Montmarin
Méthode Traditionelle Brut
How it’s made: a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier grapes, this sparkling wine is made using the traditional method.
Where it’s from: the French region of Languedoc, a southern spot close to the Balearic Sea and the northern border of Spain.
How it tastes: floral on the nose and rich on the palate, with notes of yellow fruit and lemony brightness from the Sauvignon Blanc
