Moretti Prosecco

Taste of Sta. Rita Hills / Moretti Wines

$30

Let’s Start Off with Bubbly!
Perfect for holiday dinners and gift-giving, Moretti Wines’ Prosecco was obtained by selecting grapes from the high hills of Valdobbiadene, considered the best-growing zone for Prosecco, where the yields per acre are very low. This area gives special aromas to the wine – fragrant apple, wisteria and a hint of rose. The mellow and harmonious taste makes it perfect as an aperitif. It is also ideal with fish and cheese, or with other delicate dishes. 
Elegant enough for fine celebrations and fun enough for year-round sipping. Click here for more info.
