Umberto Luigi Domenico Prosecco NV

Veneto – Italy

Banjo says: The Italians have nailed fruity, delicious sparkling wines, and none more so than Prosecco. This is exemplary, with vibrant flavours of fresh green apple, ripe grapes and a lick of lemon peel. A swathe of acidity cuts through the fruit and leaves you gasping for more.

Tom says: I used to only drink Sparkling Wines at special events like weddings or graduations. But with such good value amazing quality bottles like this, it's become a regular occurrence.
