Borgo Molino – Vinitaly 2015

NV Motivo Rosé
Very bright fresh red fruits, plenty of fruit sweetness, good acidity to support, it’s more rosé in colour rather than wine as the glera dominates the palate. Pretty lovely wine though.

2014 Motivo Prosecco DOC
Tighter leaner on the palate, quite crisp, very dry, a bit of texture, the glera is a bit more subdued in this. A much drier style of prosecco.

NV Valdobbiadene DOCG
Quieter cleaner on the palate, unctuous on the palate, bight and crunchy, R/S well integrated, fresh bright. Not quite good enough for the price.

Cuvee Extra Dry
Crunchier tighter more mouth puckering but still very focused, a bit drier, the glera is well tamed by the manzoni bianco, but it is also a little less expressive.

09 Millesimato Brut 2014
Pure quiet elegance, very dry but lacking in the palate a bit, sharp and a little awkward, not as good as the others. Prefer the Extra Dry wines. Perhaps just a bit young.

Prosecco Frizzante
Actually quite pleasant, very fresh, nice and lean, bubbles fade quite quickly, great for spritz. Very very easy to drink, quite good for the price.

Corte delle Rose
Very delicate light spritz perfect for spritz drinks, under screw cap may mess with people’s head a bit. Needs more research, also needs soda water with the aperol. Enough fruit though, actually a pretty lovely wine on its own.
