Press Reviews

"This is a sparkling wine of decent complexity and charm at a competitive price. It is in a Brut style with touches of lime, white floral hints and some peach-like notes at the shortish finish. It would be ideal as a Christmas season aperitif or with canapes or light pasta dishes." Tomas Clancy, Sunday Business Post.

"If you are having a party, Wines Direct has a range of sound wines at reasonable prices, including three different Proseccos at various quality levels. All are very drinkable, but if you are having a more select gathering, I would plump for the Le Contesse with its elegant pear fruits; you and your guests will be drinking a far better wine." John Wilson, Irish Times

"Opulently scented nose leads to frshe, crisp apple, pear and peach, with a lack of sugary overtones. The cheapest and nicest of those tasted." Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

"Nice clean peach and red apple on nose and palate. Not too sweet. Bit of a mould breaker - no pear flavours. Moderate 10.5% alc." Martin Moran, The Sunday Times
