TORRESELLA PROSECCO-THE FRANGRANCE OF SPRING IN A GLASS
by Dwight Casimere
VENICE, Italy--Welcome Spring with the taste of Torresella Prosecco, a bargain at only $16 a bottle. It immediately has the aroma of fresh spring flowers, followed by ripe flavors of pears and green apples. Looking at it in the glass, it has a fine "perlage" of tiny bubbles that float up from the bottom like a string of pearls. That lets you know right off the bat that this is a finely made sparkling wine. The impact in the mouth is one of soft creaminess, with hints of honeyed fruit and a bit of almond extract to round things out. This is a perfect sparkling wine served as an aperitif or with light cheeses, seafood, salads or a lovely frittata. in other words, order a case for your next garden party to welcome the beautiful season and a viewing of your new tulips and cherry or magnolia blossoms in the garden!
The aroma brings a fragrance of spring flowers, pear and apple, while on the palate, a fine string of bubbles is your first indication of the quality of this Prosecco. The flavor is soft, with a creamy fruitiness that hints of almond. This wine is great as an apéritif or with dry sweets and soft cheeses. Serve well chilled.
