The wine critic Jancis Robinson tastes Costaross wines

Jancin Robinson is one of the most important wine critics and writers. In 2003, she was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, and has been appointed as an advisor of the royal wine cellar.

Jancis Robinson has tasted and valued – with a score from 0 to 20 – three of our Costaross products: Gran Cuveé Extra Dry Spumante, Biologico Brut e Prosecco Brut.

About “Gran Cuvée Extra Dry Spumante”, scored 16 to 20, Robinson said:

“From Conegliano. I don’t have any details from the producer about why this isn’t DOC Prosecco, as their two other wines are. Marzipan and elderflower aromas. Very gentle – it feels almost closer to frizzante than spumante. More elderflower florals on the palate, along with a white-chocolate creaminess. Pretty! A wine that would work well with melon and ham or a bowl of strawberries and cream.”

Our “Organic Prosecco Brut”, scored by Robinson 16 to 20, is described as:

“Certified organic.  A little nutty (think toasted sunflower seeds and cobnuts) and a little floral on the nose. Delicate bubbles. Greengages and borage and lime spun sugar. Lovely tingling length.”

Last but not least, with a score of 15,5 to 20, the writers of the Financial Times, defined our “Prosecco Brut” as:

“Light appley nose. Fresh, gauzy florals, simple apples and pears on the palate. The organic Prosecco has more depth of flavour but there is a nice sherbet zing to the finish.”
