Prosecco has been making a comeback in the US, particularly in the East Coast. The sweet, poorly made stuff you would scoff now more commonly is an excellent value sparkling. I still find generally Cava, from Spain, to lead slightly, but have been en
joying many Prosecco’s these days, and some decent quality ones are widely available, and fun to grab as an aperitif.
Review: Non Vintage Valdo Prosecco – Brut (2011 review)
This Prosecco now seems to have good distribution, and is worth looking for.
To The Eye: Pale yellow, excellent tiny bubbles
On The Nose: Pear, green melon, bread yeast.
In the Mouth: Mostly
dry, creamy mouthfeel. Green apple and a hint of spice Nice finish.
Recommendation: Buy, Consume. A good apertif wine easily quaffed. 89 points.
Look later this week for the full Sparkling holiday guide, cheers!
