Borgo Magredo Prosecco
Borgo Magredo Prosecco Brut NV [75cl] Italy

Gold Medal: Berliner Wine Trophy

Bronze Medal: Decanter World Wine Awards 2012

This is an extremely clean, bright and forceful Prosecco, finished totally dry yet packed with fresh Prosecco fruit. White peaches and nectarines focus the fruit with great zeal.

Decanter World Wine Awards judges: "Delicious green apple and lemon nose. Nice mineral dryness. Round, ripe, soft and bubbly. Honey and acacia finish.

100% Prosecco, estate grown and hand harvested from vines in the Grave de Fruili appellation. The characteristic gravelly soil of this area is created by the Meduna River, which flows down from Carnic Pre-Alps, bringing along pebbles and stones. The soil is so "meagre" (hence the Italian word "Magredo") that the vines appear to be planted in a water stream bed.
