What we’re drinking – Carpenè Malvolti 1868 Extra Dry Conegliano

I sat down to write a review and nearly forgot, having to pour a third glass before I started to write. Gorgeous clear straw color, loads of tiny bubbles, and yeasty aromas from the moment the cork is popped. On the palate, fresh crusty bread and hints of sweet peach give way to sweet lemon that lasts forever. At under $20, this is an incredible bargain for sparklers. Buy it by the case. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
