In a nutshell: A delicious, easy drinking, softly fruity Prosecco with a nicely light sparkle.
The lowdown: This lovely prosecco is termed 'Frizzante' which means it's lightly sparkling (Spumante is the fully sparkling version) and nicely soft on the tongue. On the nose it has aromas of blanched almonds and white flowers giving a quite heady quality. On the tongue it's ever so slightly off-dry with a lovely softness and a touch of poached apple flavour along with zesty sherbet and candied fruits. For a modestly priced Prosecco there's certainly plenty going on here.
When to drink: Light and fresh, it makes any occasion a bit special and is great in a Bellini cocktail.
Situated in among rolling hill in the village of Refrontolo in the province of Treviso, the heart of Prosecco country, Cantina Bernardi was founded in 1960 and is family run with the third generation beginning to take the reins.
Prosecco is what they're all about and which has built their reputation. They do, however, produce a number of still wines, both red ans white, using mainly local grape varieties.
