Valdobbiadene is at the western end of Prosecco’s region, and wines from here tend to be particularly crisp. This one is a classic example of the style, light-weight and dry, with fleeting aromas and flavours of Granny Smith apple, melon and a touch of lemon zest. Length is always a sign of quality in a wine and here the flavours linger on the palate for ages. Serve with Crispy Polenta Squares with Tonnato Sauce & Quick Pickled Shallots.
Most of Villa Sandi’s many Proseccos are from Valdobbiadene, and this one is from vineyards to the southeast, closer to Treviso. As a result, it’s slightly rounder and fruitier with aromas and flavours of red apple and pear, white peach and cantaloupe. Lightweight and frothy, it’s dry but not brutally so and, again, the way those flavours linger shows its class. Pair with Cozze Fritte (Fried Mussels) with Saffron Mayonnaise.
