The texture of this wine deftly balances the richness of ripe stone fruit with the grip of fruit skins, like apple and apricot. A hint of white pepper adds subtle complexity, while the finish feels fresh and elegant. Try it with toasted almonds.

Sparkling wine with a clean nose, pleasantly fruity, with whiffs of rennet apples and peach blossoms. Delicate, balanced taste.

Here’s a Prosecco with a surprisingly rich, toasted quality that translates into roasted almond, walnut and yellow fruit flavors. The toasted notes add unexpected complexity to a dry, crisp apéritif wine.

The lemon-lime nose is true to form, and the palate is perfectly zesty, with citrus dominating a full package of Prosecco-like flavors. Slightly sweet later on, which carries the finish. Plucky and solid.

Mildly toasty, with hints of bread dough in addition to crisp white fruits. the palate is lean but pleasing, with pineapple, peach and apple. Finishes moderately long, with some talc. Tangy and tasty overall.

Frothy bubbles and a luminous color set the stage for this lively Prosecco redolent of peachy cream and white mineral. The carbonation is pungent and direct and underlines the wine’s fruity flavors and bright acidity. Santa Margherita is one of only two producers permitted to bottle DOC Prosecco despite the fact they are located outside the DOC zone.

Santa Margherita of Pinot Grigio fame brings us this tight expression of Prosecco with easy aromas of peach and citrus and a playful touch of sweetness on the close. This is a perfect wine to drink with friends on a lazy summer afternoon.

Santa Margherita has taken great strides to break into different wines other than its flagship Pinot Grigio. This Extra Dry Prosecco Superiore shows quality and personality with slightly sweet touches of grapefruit and peach spread throughout.

There’s a smoky undercurrent to this Prosecco, and crunchy acidity shapes the green pear, lemon zest and spring blossom notes on the frothy mousse. The finish features a light, toasty hint. Drink now.
