Tasting Note Pale straw-coloured with green hues Chrismont’s LA ZONA PROSECCO is instantly appealing with subtle green apple aromas. The front palate bursts open with a crisp, clean zesty palate of apple, melon and delicate bubbles and is perfectly paired with freshly shucked oysters. Drink young and fresh.
The variety Prosecco is a white grape variety commonly made into sparkling wine. Originating from the cool hills of the Veneto region in Italy, wines typically have subtle flavours of spring flowers, herbs and green apples with a natural bitterness. Wine styles can vary from dry to sweet and sparkling to frizzante. Fresh and unpretentious, Prosecco is an ideal aperitivo, celebratory drink or after-meal digestive.
