Banfi Maschio dei Cavalieri Prosecco Valdobbiadene (Ship as 1.5L) (Elsewhere $15)

SKU #1044489

According to the Wine Spectator: "Delicate melon and mineral character on the nose. Medium-bodied, with crisp lemon and white pepper flavors and a fresh finish. Drink now." (04/07) "Nicely balanced and more complex than most renditions, this classy Prosecco was splendid by itself and delicious with the sushi. The wine's inherent hint of sweetness proved a boon to the salty soy sauce, while its steely finish kept everything in gustatory equilibrium." (Paul Lukacs and Marguerite Thomas, Wine Review Online, 01/06) This is an excellent Prosecco from the Valdobbiadene DOC, the classic growing area for Prosecco in Italy. This isn't some IGT knockoff. Great balance, distinct aromatics, wonderful mousse and a long finish are all hallmarks of this stellar buy. Once again, nervous wholesalers unsure of the market in the new year are looking to unload inventory for your benefit. Enjoy! (Greg St.Clair, K&L Italian Wine buyer)

- 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
