Italy – DOCG, Veneto
Always a perennial favourite of mine for all sorts of celebration and special events. Pale straw in appearance with a lime tint. On the nose you will find nut, mineral and peach. The wine is medium bodied, dry with bitter almond and citrus flavours.

Italy – DOC Veneto
Mineral and floral on the nose this dishes out a surprisingly generous texture and more flavour and structure than the breeding and price would suggest—this is good value. The mousse is abundant and infused with good texture and flavour—tangy white grapefruit, red currant and lemon chiffon pie. Serve to guests as they arrive and pair with stand-around sea food appetizers.
