Ca’ Secco
• nv – 2016 Wine Enthusiast – 86 pts
• nv – October 2016 Wine Review Online – 89 pts – “As far as I know, there isn’t any Glera (the grape that Prosecco is made from in Italy) planted in California. That said, this is a great deal like a fine Prosecco, and without the berry aftertaste that you find in many of the Italian offerings. This one is all apples, pears, and crispness, with a zesty, just off dry finish that will please a crowd – especially a warm crowd. I’m guessing maybe Columbard, and a quick look at a tech sheet says… Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. I would not have guessed that.” Rich Cook
