"It would have the hallmarks of a legend, if it wasn’t true – how a cask of forgotten Recioto dessert wine was discovered in 1936, wonderfully aged into a bold, dry red with a pleasing bitter edge (Amarone is Italian for “bitter”). Our friend Stefano Cesari and his family still create the finest of wines in the hills of Verona – and here, they quite simply prove why authentic Amarone has become one of Italy’s most symbolic wines."

JK.14 I Tre Fratelli Prosecco Treviso Extra dry, Valdobbiadene, Italy
Attractive bouquet of white fleshed fruits and citrus laced with green and red apple; a white beer yeasty quality adds a familiar tone. On the palate – fruity, crisp, fresh and most certainly dry. A fine mousse and moderate finish. Balanced and well made – a nice alternative to your usual tipple. Drink now.
