Drusian Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry
*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)
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.
A clean Prosecco, with apple and a hint of grapefruit and mineral. Medium froth, with a crisp finish. (JC, Web-2007)
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.
