VENICE, Italy--Welcome Spring with the taste of Torresella Prosecco, a bargain at only $16 a bottle. It immediately has the aroma of fresh spring flowers, followed by ripe flavors of pears and green apples. Looking at it in the glass, it has a fine "perlage" of tiny bubbles that float up from the bottom like a string of pearls. That lets you know right off that this is a finely made sparkling wine. The impact in the mouth is one of soft creaminess, with hints of honeyed fruit and a bit of almond extract to round things out. This is a perfect sparkling wine served as an aperitif or with light cheeses, seafood, salads or a lovely frittata. In other words, order a case for your next party to welcome the spring season while you sit and smell the scent of new flowers in the garden!
