Youthful, light, and fresh. Crowd-pleasing DOC prosecco.
In local dialect, the word “Garbèl” expresses a satisfying sensation of freshness and pleasant lightness. Recognizable for its dry finish, youthful nose and pleasing drinkability, Garbèl is suitable as an aperitif or an accompaniment to delicately-flavoured dishes. To indicate the origin of the grapes from vineyards on the plain, the label is applied horizontally.
