VENICE,Italy--Torresella winery is located in fertile northeastern corner

of the Veneto, where the Romans once amassed their riches and the Republic

of Venice provided wine and grain for export. Located between the Venetian

Lagoon and the Italian Alps, the winery produces an exquisite sparkling

wine from the native Glera grapes; Teorresella Prosecco DOC. Appropriately,

it is a pale straw yellow color with flecks of gold and an elegantly

balanced taste that is neither profoundly dry or overly sweet. Perfect

alone as an aperitif, it is also a terrific sparkling wine with food. What

goes with that creamy, soft goat cheese from Sonoma, or that wonderfully

milky Burrata cheese made with mozzarella and cream from Tuscany, or that

aromatic Thai dish with shrimp and sweet basil, or Nigiri Sushi or spicy

Salmon roll? I highly recommend Torresella Prosecco. It has a bright

combination of pears, honeydew and green melon. There are white flowers on

the nose and lovely citrus and melon aromas. This is a pretty wine that is

literally a love letter to spring.
