Review/Tasting Notes

“Fine bubbles, rich and complex aromas, beautifully balanced by the characteristic delicate house style.  Ripe structured apple flavours give way to a long, clean, crisp aftertaste.”

This pours with a reassuring fizz that more than hints at the clean, crisp refreshment to come.  The smell of fresh, ripe, Italian apples is evident as soon as the sparkles start to form in the glass. A theme which continues as the taste of those Italian apples never diminishes, even long after the glass is empty.  There are no other distractions and none are needed.

Verdict

Definition of consistency, with clean, fresh, refreshing apples being evident at every turn.  It has a reassuring taste combined with a crisp refreshment provided by the native Italian applies.  A cider as finely tuned as an Italian sports car engine and as culturally refined as the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. As exquisite in taste as a fine Italian, tailored suit.
