    Just ordered by second half case. A gorgeous prosecco with tiny bubbles which make it feel like velvet in your mouth. Not too dry and delicate flavours make this perfect easy drinking. I usually buy Sainsbury’s finest prosecco or m&s and after trying this I wouldn’t touch either with a barge pole.

  2. Leonor

    Lovely bubbly, light but rich, thoroughly recommend

  3. Sylvia

    Quite simply the best in my opinion!
    The bubbles, the aroma and the pure decadence

  4. Will

    My wife loves prosecco. We must have tried dozens over the years but she says this is easily the best
