Region: Friuli Grapes: Glera First Glance: Stonefruits, Blossoms, Citrus, Value!
The Wine: This house favourite comes from a young vineyard in Friuli’s San Martino al Tagliamento, a village that has only recently been granted Prosecco status. Now with just 10 g/L residual, we’ve seen Babo’s Prosecco go from strength to strength (most Prosecco consumed in Australia clocks in at around 17 g/L, making this both drier and more intense than many other examples out there). Abiding by the DOC regulations, this has to be labelled as a non-vintage, although the wine actually comes from a single vintage (2019 in this case).
It has fresh, peachy/floral fragrance and a creamy mouthfeel centred around a core of pear skin, citrus and melon fruits, offset by substantial yeasty, creamy depths. As always, one of the best value Proseccos going around.
