Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore

Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene (valdobˈbjaːdene) Prosecco Superiore, $19.99-$23.99, 91 points, was perfect as a stand-alone refreshment, and later with sauteed scallops and cheddar cheese broccoli, on this 95 degree afternoon.

The color is very light with some golden tints.
Sweet aroma of pome and hints of lemon were only slightly complimented by a medium effervescence.
A typically light and dry wine with good acidity, flavors of green apple, and hints of pear, followed through to the pleasant finish.
Though this is a nice Prosecco, the cost was a bit pricey; I'm not disappointed that I bought this wine, but as a rule, good Prosecco can be found for $8-$15. However, this wine has some gravitas when a dinner display (i.e) is to be as elegant as possible.
I tasted this Prosecco last year, but found this year's offering just a little better.
Salute ai produttori italiani!
