If you, like me, ever worry about showing up to a party with a low-grade bottle of fizz then worry no more – we’ve unearthed a bottle that looks the part, tastes the part and, most importantly, doesn’t break the bank.
Villa Oppi Spumante Extra Dry comes in a sleek tall bottle with a silver plaque carrying embossed print.
It’s the sort of branding you would associate with a vintage champagne but with the price tag of a bottle of prosecco, and it tastes just as good to boot.
With a soft bouquet of fresh apples and pears and gentle fruit and vanilla flavours this is a sophisticated fizz which is a real pleasure to drink.
It has great acidity and persistence in the mouth, with very fine and persistent bubbles.
It works perfectly well as an aperitif or with classic Italian antipasto.
