04 Bisson, Prosecco dei Colli Trevigiani

Light, and reminiscent in flavor and structure of typical French Pouilly-Fume sauvignon blanc. The flavors aren't entirely complex for sparkling wine, but good for Prosecco in general--very appley with lemons, grassy herbs, and hints of honeydew melon--but the aroma has surprising Champagne-influenced depth. The acidity and dryness shine through on the smell. The finish wants to go somewhere--it wants to get creamy and nutty--but it never does. It doesn't have to, but why tease me like this?
