The NV Prosecco Brut is a richer, creamier wine than the Brut Cuvee Private. Here the fruit tends towards ripe yellow peaches, with flowers, spices and minerals that add complexity. The finish is long, generous and nicely balanced. This is Lot 1013708. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2012.

The NV Prosecco Brut shows noticeably more character as its bursts from the glass with an engaging array of aromas and flavors. It comes across as generous and expansive on the palate, with excellent length and lovely harmony. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2009.

This is a popular and trustworthy Prosecco brand that delivers stone fruit, lemon zest, crushed sage leaf and a vitamin-mineral note at the back. There is enough complexity and crispness here to guarantee this as an anytime, anywhere wine.

Sweet and floral, with lime and gardenia on the nose. Nice lemon-lime flavors are tasty and just crisp enough. Finishes a touch like Sprite, with lingering tangerine and pineapple flavors.

Here’s a value worth celebrating: A thick, full-bodied sparkler with a bountiful honeydew character, light bead and fresh finish. Drink now.

Tiny bubbles lift the light, lemon impression of this wine; it lasts with a toasty, leesy flavor that’s more oxidative in tone. An austere sparkler.

The legend was born in the forests of the Venetian Alps. A gnome who lived in the forest went down one day to the woods around Conegliano to search for the elixir of happiness. When he came to a magician’s cave, he went in and found a pot in which Prosecco grapes were fermenting. The gnome looked closely at the pot, so closely that he fell into it. To his enormous surprise, he realized that he had at last found the elixir. Lightheaded from the delicious sparkling drink, he sang and danced his way back to the forest. Thereafter, the life of the gnomes was full of life and joy and happiness.
