Ruggeri Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry Giall’ Oro DOCG NV
Ruggeri’s Valdobbiadene Prosecco is a bottle of light straw – yellow tending to pale green. Its crystal clarity is laced with a persistent perlage of fine bubbles. The bouquet, although persistent and intensely fruity, is extremely delicate which brings mature golden apples and acacia flowers readily to mind. It is gently sweet and fresh on the palate and pleasantly light in alcohol, extremely smooth and well-balanced with long and fruity finish. With its great versatility, Giall’Oro can be enjoyed equally well as an aperitif or to enhance the close of a meal. Indeed, this is a wine that can brighten up any hour of the day.
