Much more enjoyable than the 2016. Deep ruby color. Black pepper, tar and late-season lilac on the nose. Medium-body but layered flavor with granite, vanilla, crushed red pepper and old boot leather...kind of a salty finish. I don’t remember how much I paid for this, but whatever it was, I would have paid more. Fantastic! — a month ago
Light, delicate bubbles and a little bit of sweetness. Gentle slate and rocky minerality. Some grapefruit rinds on the finish. For Prosecco and at this price, not shabby. — 22 days ago
This was a free wedding gift to my father-in-law and his new bride from their Lufthansa flight attendants on their flight to visit us. As such, I had extremely low expectations. But you know what? Actually not bad! Nose is a little antiseptic and taste is a little sweet, but for airplane booze, this is just fine. — a month ago
