With its festive red cap and small, silver-accented rococo label, this packaging is an obvious choice for the Holidays.  Though it’s called “extra dry,” inside the curvy bottle is a dry prosecco that, when opened, wafted out hints of toast several feet away. Pear notes in the aroma were transmitted into the flavors, along with strawberry and green apple skin, too.  There was also nice acidity in this pale tan froth of tiny bubbles.  A medium-bodied wine with flavors that became bigger as it warmed.  Moderately long finish that leaves the mouth fresh with acidity. Drink on its own or plain or lightly salty appetizers.  Highly Recommended, 90 — BSE
