What’s better for that summer thirst than a glass of cool, sparkling white wine? It will revive laughter and enjoyment and a desire to share magic moments, perhaps with a delicious starter of small cuttlefish, squid, mussels and other delights.

So why not try a bottle of Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry Ca' Fior by S.I.V.A.G. of San Fior in the province of Treviso. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

This is a wonderful product, bright straw in colour with fine, persistent perlage; on the nose the wine immediately reveals attractive floral hints that blend with fresh fruit, already promising sweet juicy apricots and peaches, but also bananas, apples and pears.

Its quality is truly fine. On the palate it fulfils expectations perfectly, with just the right sugar content, freshness and fruity juiciness, as well as sensations of yeast and bread.

It’s well known that this type of wine never has a full body and robust structure, but that’s not what it’s about. Its strength is in its mellow verve and the pleasant froth that invades the mouth.

Imagine swilling it down with fried squid and courgettes; the bottle will soon be empty, but you and your digestion will feel good. Serve chilled, at around 7-8°C in classical champagne glasses.
