Drusian Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry

SKU #1030883 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 *Best Buy* Delicate aromas of white flowers, stone fruit and pear lead the way. On the palate, a core of green apple and citrus is carried by vibrant, fresh acidity. Small, lively bubbles lend finesse. (KO)  (12/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Quince, herbs and a touch of aspirin. This really has a lot more fruit depth than most Proseccos at this price. Medium dry but finishes fresh. Well priced, just a slight sensation of boiled sweets on the finish – but I’d rather this than the more bland style that seems so common now Prosecco is everywhere.  (11/2015)

Wine Spectator

 A clean Prosecco, with apple and a hint of grapefruit and mineral. Medium froth, with a crisp finish. (JC, Web-2007)

K&L Notes

The Drusian Family has been producing wine for three generations, starting with Giuseppino Drusian in the middle of 19th century and followed by his son Rino, then grandson, Francesco. An innovator at this historic estate, Francesco has brought technological advancement as well as a passion for the land that manifests in his decision to use no pesticides or insecticides and only organic fertilizers. Produced using the Charmat (tank-fermented) method, from grapes grown in the calcareous, clay soils of the Valdobbiadene DOCG, the Extra Dry is straw-like in color, with notes of Granny Smith apple and white flowers that turn creamy on the mid-palate and finish crisp and clean.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
