‘Tis the season to ring in the new year with a sparkling wine. This year our search takes us to the Prosecco region of northeastern Italy for this frothy selection.
Made from the glera grape, prosecco gets its bubbles from being bottled under pressure, called the charmat method. While some prefer the natural process of secondary fermentation that creates champagne, the charmat method showcases more fruit flavors with less yeast influence than champagne.
Light orchard fruit flavors and a floral bouquet make this semi-dry a delightful companion to any party. Serve about 45 to 50 degrees.
Sherry: “Dry and citrusy, with flavors of lime and pear with almond on the finish.” (3.75 stars out of 5)
Chris: “A floral and peach bouquet with flavors of apricot, lemon, apple and almond.” (3.75 stars out of 5)
Available from $13 to $16.
