Even though it's made from the same grape (Glera) and they use the same vinification techniques, Alpha Box & Dice aren't allowed to call this sparkling wine a Prosecco, because Prosecco, like Champagne or Melton Mowbray pies, is now a protected region under appellation law, so they risk being sued. But we can! This Prosecco is one of the best we have tasted, a much more fulfilling fizz than many of the soapy trifles found in northern Italy. The aromas of heather, apple and raw oats evoke Chablis with bubbles and there's an ample bosom of orchard fruit and a richness in its creamy depths that distinguishes it from the rest, as does its softly caressing mousse. Drink it with friends and for goodness sake don't call it Glera, unless there's an IP lawyer in the room. 11% alc. Drink now-2018.
