Named after the water taxis plying the canals of Venice which were originally steamboats - hence the name Vaporetto.
Vinified by probably the best and most well-known name in Prosecco- Bisol - and produced to a "Brut" style which is fractionally drier than the "extra-dry" Prosecco we mainly list.
Opens with agreeable floral and green apple scents with fresh green apple flavour, bright acidity and contrasting creamy smoothness and gravelly mineral. Shows livelier-than-normal spritz, finishing just off-dry.
We have been able to get small quantities of this superb Prosecco several times over the past year or so but had never tried it. We opened a bottle on New Year's Eve and can say that it was one of the nicest Proseccos we have tasted for ages.
This latest batch of a few bottles has slightly scuffed labels - hence our fantastic price.
Sells for upwards to £12 elsewhere- at Binendwines just £7.95.
