Lunetta Mini Prosecco (200ml)

Description

TASTING NOTES
Aromas of stone fuits, particularly peach, and also hints of apple. A crisp, light, and well-balanced wine with creamy mousse and delicate apple and pear characters.

IN THE VINEYARD
The Glera grape variety pre-dates Roman times. The grapes for Lunetta are sourced from the hills above Treviso, a traditional growing area for Prosecco. Hillsides with cool, loose soils are favourable. The grapes are harvested by hand in the second half of September.

IN THE WINERY
The must from the first soft pressing of the grapes is used - left for 10-12 hours for any sediment to settle. It then ferments in stainless steel for around 10 days. The second fermentation takes place by the Charmat method.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
The perfect aperitif or picnic wine!

IN THE PRESS
"Soft, round, peachy stone fruit, with rounded creamy acidity and lemon sherbet on the finish" Ronan Sayburn, Sommelier Wine Awards 2014 "Great mousse and a lush fruit finish of yellow apples and quince" Garry Clark, The Chester Grosvenor 2014 "Juicy, offering a lively bead and flavours of ripe peach, guava, melon and spice, with a firm finish." Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, May 31st 2013 "Fruity yet dry, this opens with subtle floral and green notes. It is precise with good acids, taut citrus and pear fruit, and a crisp, fresh honeyed finish." Sommelier Wine Awards 2013, Judges Comments
