Giordano wines are a mixed bunch; the wines are variable in quality but are at the cheaper end of the spectrum. This wine was as usual very vague about details. Giordano took just under a month to deliver my last case. Laithwaites and Virgin take 2-3 days. This wine is decent enough and as part of a case deal is fair value. It’s fine on its own, better with Aperol or we had it with a dash of Chambord black raspberry. It’s actually better than a lot of more expensive supermarket prosecco. The closure is a traditional corkscrew, however so it doesn’t feel especially celebratory.
Tasting notes: Very pale lemon colour. Very faint primary citrus notes. No secondary or tertiary notes. Balanced acidity; dry. Short finish. Flavours of citrus. Very light wine at 11%.
