Cheeky Italian fizz

Mezzacorona Mezza Italian Glacial Bubbly Extra Dry Sparkling NV, Vigneti delle Dolomiti, AUD $20

From northern Italy’s hilly Trentino region, this is a youthful, grapy, lightly muscat-scented wine with light yellow-green colour and a foaming mousse. It’s fresh, light and attractively fruity with a trace of sweetness leading into a clean finish. A good aperitif style. (Cork)
