01 Oct Awards from Gilbert & Gaillard
Gilbert & Gaillard gave excellent scores to the selection of Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG as follows:
Grande Cuvée del Fondatore – 90 points
Pale gold, sparkling highlights. Nose of citrus and white fruits, floral and menthol notes. On the palate it has a desirable liveliness eliciting agreeable fruity fragrances that spread across the palate. A finish that inspires freshness. For refined fish courses.
Bandarossa – 90 points
Sparkling highlights. A fine nose of citrus fruits (lemon, mandarin) and dried fruit. On the palate it is soft and velvety, delicate and with a fine perlage, a bouquet that is very caressing to the palate. Delicate persistence without any aromatic monotony. For a candlelit aperitif.
Audax 0.3 – 86 points
Pale Golden colour. A nose of citrus fruits and white fruit, slightly creamy. On the palate it seduces with its very dry but not arid taste, with a dominant desirable citrus tone. A simple pleasure, delightfully pure, for an aperitif or fruit tart.
