A Perfect Pairing for a Light + Refreshing Summer Meal

Thanks to its versatile nature, Valdo Marca Oro Prosecco DOC Brut complements perfectly with a wide variety of dishes. With a decidedly intense bouquet that recalls consistent aromas of fresh and fruity flavors, it pairs beautifully with the traditional Italian salad known as panzanella. A flavorful mix of fresh ingredients, this simple and tasty salad made of stale bread, juicy tomatoes, crunchy cucumbers, and red onions represents the epitome of the Italian Summer.
