Mirco Mariotti Smarazen, Emilia-Romagna, Italy, NV(750ml)
Soft, small bubbles punctuated by notes of white melon, tart tangerine, and white pepper on a brisk, lightly astringent palate. It is fresh, juicy, and full of playful primary character that quenches and refreshes with whimsical excitement. The effervescence here is quite mild yet adds a cheerful and flirtatious edge to an otherwise lighthearted and lively wine.
