Bright straw. On the nose, apples, ripe melons and yellow flowers. Creamy and voluptuous on the palate. Ripe fruit with lots of supporting freshness. The sensation is like listening to Joe Cocker belt out a song with a trio of sisters on back-up vocals. This single-vineyard Prosecco is within Villa Barberina – you can stay there, check it out at www.villabarberina.it/en/ – up in the rolling hills of Valdobbiadene. Grave di Stecca is one of the best Italian sparkling wine of its kind.
