Presto NV sparkling wine

Presto NV sparkling wine, $10.99-$12.99, 85 points, is of course an attempt to find a niche that reaches those seeking convenience; don't look for excellence here, but rather sufficiency, adequacy, and ease; that is this little frizzante Italian white wine.
The nose is near dumb excepting a slight orange note.
Light, crisp enough, off-dry, neutral flavor save for subtle hints of vanilla, banana, and citrus.
Finished weakly with an unnoticeable 11% alcohol and a touch of ginger.
Paired okay with my Yellow-fin tuna salad, but was better with my almond lemon cake vanilla ice-cream à la mode.
This is a specialty item at Whole Foods.

    1. VG: Thx, if I see it I'll try it and I'll be GLAD to give it a score; who knows, maybe 99! ;-)
      I'm, however, very glad you explained your previous comment!
