Collalto Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut NV, Veneto, Italy
On the not-extremely-dry end of dry, this is subtle, tasty wine with notes of apple sherbet and light poached pears, a light floral edge and rounded, yeasty finish. S-

Collalto Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry NV, Veneto, Italy
A touch sweeter than the above, again with floral, yeasty notes, plus an apple-y character, but here the apples have caramelised slightly. Soft and (again) subtle, tasty stuff but maybe not quite as fine as the Brut. B+

Collalto Spumante Rosé Manzoni Moscato Extra Dry NV, Veneto, Italy
Very alluring style with a rose petal fragrance and a gushing flavour of musky grapes, freshened up with a note of lime. Gentle, tasty and very moreish. S-

For all three, RRP is £14, stockists include Woodwinters, Wined Up Here, Strand Wine Company, Bottle Apostle, James Fearon Wines, Speciality Drinks, Corks of Cotham, Hitchin Wine Company
