Reviews

  • Crede, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG – 2016 – 90 points – Wine Advocate

    “Bisol's 2016 Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Crede Brut is a delightfully sharp and delineated wine with crisp citrus notes followed by white peach, Granny Smith apple and tangy lime."

  • Crede, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG – 2016 – 92 points – Editors’ Choice – Wine Enthusiast

    “Enticing scents of white wild flower and citrus blossom lead the nose on this elegant sparkler. Silky and crisp, the bright palate delivers yellow apple, ripe pear and a tangy hint of tangerine framed in vibrant acidity and a polished perlage.”
