"LEONTE" VALDOBBIADENE PROSECCO SUPERIORE DOCG
92/100 Falstaff Prosecco Trophy 2022
Immediate and prolonged on the nose, the aromatic perception is facilitated by a medium residual sugar. White peach and ripe apple are the main fruity descriptors, while acacia blossom and rosehip are the floral ones. On the palate the modest sugary residue blends delicately with the acid and saline part, transmitting a persistent harmonic and prolonged velvety sensation that invites continuous drinking.
