2013 Prosecco DOC
Looking for a stellar bottle of bubbles? Then look no further than today’s L’Antica Quercia 2013 Prosecco DOC.
Made in the style of the finest Champagne, this Prosecco is well structured and crisp, with a lovely balance of white fruit and subtle herbal undertones.
Better hurry - at 33% off, this Italian number won’t last long!
Very pale straw yellow through and through, with the tiniest bubbles trailing up the glass.
Bright, crisp, and reminiscent of a great Chardonnay, with hints of white peach, Anjou pear, lemon curd, lime zest, vanilla bean, and fresh herbs.
Well structured and crisp, with flavors of green apple and fresh white peach laid overtop orange flower, grapefruit zest, toasted vanilla spice, and a herbal savory note of thyme.
Very soft on the palate, with a lovely plume of mousse that gives the wine a beautiful and luxurious mouthfeel.
This wine would pair beautifully with a soft cheese plate.
What the Winery Says
The oak tree on the label is a 600 year-old landmark near the winery and represents this estate’s commitment to organic farming and handmade wines. This is a clean, crisp, Prosecco with fine fruit and accents of bitter almond and fresh herbs. Finishes dry and bright with a hint of 5 Spice. It’s dry, mouthwatering, and keeps you coming back for sip after sip.
95 Point Review - Master Sommelier Catherine Fallis “This soft, understated and very dry Italian sparkling wine, made with organic grapes, has notes of peach pit, white peach, lemon crème brûlée, gingerbread, cinnamon stick, sandalwood, Nilla wafer and dried chamomile flowers. It is medium-bodied and has a very fine bead, or mousse (tiny bubbles!) and offers flavors of quince, ripe Bartlett pear, and slivered almonds on the palate. A lovely quinine-like bitterness appears on the long, crisp, pithy, dry finish, cleansing the palate and preparing it for another bite of something deliciously salty and earthy, like a deep-fried olive stuffed with ricotta and gorgonzola cheese.”
Wine Enthusiast “Here’s a gorgeous Brut Prosecco with generous tones of stone fruit and white mineral. The frothy foaming helps render a sensation of fullness and plumpness that you’ll really enjoy with cheese and artichoke dip.”
