Some Proseccos can be disappointingly bland and best used for cocktails. This one from the commune of Asola is a beautiful drink on its own as an aperitif or at parties and also with light food. Over 100 refers to the age of some of the vines from which the organically produced grapes are grown. Extra Dry means the level of residual sugar (15ml/l) in this Prosecco which is slightly higher than in most Brut Champagnes though strictly speaking it could be classified Brut given the 3g/l tolerance that Champagne allows.
The wine has a pale gold colour and smells of white peaches, apples and pears with acacia flowers. The palate is fruity and a little biscuity, the bubbles large and the texture lovely and creamy. A Prosecco with substance.
Drink on its own as an aperitif or at parties with canapés; also good with fish and shellfish including lobster and oysters, chicken, turkey, Asian food, truffles, parmesan cheese, parma ham, cheese-based sauces, fruit based desserts and of course with panettone
"Colour: brilliant, with a pale straw yellow and green shades, intense and persistent perlage. Flavour: notes of apple and pear, white peach, with fine quality. Taste: creamy, an impressive length and a unique harmony. A fresh structured and balanced taste".
