Verdi is the BEST sparkling wine I have EVER tasted! I must preface this by saying I am not a wine conessur but I am not afraid to try things. Many sparkling wines and champagnes out there have a sour or bitter taste at the end of a drink. This bitter and sour bite makes me sick! I cannot stand the tast in other beverages. Verdi on the other had has done it ALL right! It has a soft fruity taste with an amazing amount of sparkle and zest. It seems to have a smooth finish and nothing that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. We love to have Verdi in my house. Not only do friends call and ask what we had for drinks on more than one occasion, they have all switched to this amazing sparkling wine. We drink this for any occasion we want to celebrate. Also my husband brings it in when he wants to have a romantic evening just to unwind! It is perfect for even the pickiest of people. This will be a sure fire crowd pleaser for your event too!
