This Millesimato Extra Dry Prosecco has won multiple gold, silver and bronze medals around the world – and it’s easy to see why. Made in the Prosecco Superiore DOCG, in the province of Treviso in Veneto in north-east Italy, it is made to strict regulations.

It has bold flavours of emerging fruit and is well-balanced with a long, delightful finish.

  1. Frannymo

    Great clean taste, refreshing, with great gentle fizz. Went great with Prawn stir fry

  2. Leash72

    Delightful glass of bubbles, in my opinion with a light slightly apple flavour, slightly dry. Went very well with a home made chicken curry. I’d re-order and would enjoy in the sunshine on a lazy Summer’s afternoon.
