Its bright shade immediately catches the eye: at first sight Undici captivates with its vibrant straw yellow and intrigues with its fine and persistent foam, which releases in the glass and delicately accompanies it to the palate.
The grapes offer a wide variety of fragrances to this sparkling white wine, full of precious fruity and floral aromas pleasantly tickling the nose. The result is a symphony of aromas which is also reflected in its taste: Undici is soft, with good body, persistent and well-balanced, including in terms of acidity.
To be served at 8 °C, this refined Prosecco Superiore “Rive” is an excellent aperitif and a splendid wine for any occasion, to be paired in particular with delicate fruit pastry and focaccia bread.
