Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut

Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut: celebration in a bottle.

+Santa Margherita Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Brut, $26

Joyous and playful, this crisp, clean, lively Prosecco is a celebration in a bottle. It’s from Italian producer, Santa Margherita, which has been making wine in the Veneto region since 1935.

This DOCG Brut is made from glera, which is Prosecco’s most important sub-zone. It displays beautiful, persistent bubbles and white peach and apple aromas. The wine also has a wonderful juiciness from stonefruit and ripe pears.

Italian Prosecco is booming, but only a fifth of its 500 million bottles sold annually are from the more exclusive Prosecco DOCG, which this one is. Yet it doesn’t come with a terribly high price tag – you can pick it up in Dan Murphy’s and BWS for $26, and you can get a half-size bottle for $16.

Prosecco is a wonderful aperitif that is also great for food. The Santa Margherita can be paired with seafood, rich pasta, meat dishes, or even a cheese platter. This refreshing drink is great for a quick pick-me up or as a celebration drink.
