Secco Italian Bubbles Prosecco

Secco Italian Bubbles Prosecco, $13.99-$15.99, 90 points, has a ginger-ale color, and appears to be without effervescence except when pouring or swirling, but the ginger-ale look carries over to the mouth-feel (almost biting) in a way no other Prosecco, up to this point in my experience, has; the light-plus body is almost hidden beneath this ginger-ale quality, which does subside with air.
This is a dry wine with good acidity.
The nose is soft pome fruit with a hint of vanilla.
The flavor is still on the neutral side, yet there is a hint of tart apple accentuating the Prosecco grape.
Ginger, tart apple, the buzz, and Prosecco carry onto the finish in crisp refreshment.
Paired well with my Asian cuisine.
