Made from the grape variety of the same name, Prosecco is fast becoming our favorite go-to sparkler for celebrations of all types. This frothy offering, from one of Italy's most well-regarded producers of Prosecco, offers tremendous value. It combines refreshing, fruity flavors of white peach and acacia, with a hint of fresh squeezed lime on the finish.
Although relatively simple compared to Valdo and Zenato, Mionettooffers crowd-pleasing notes of fresh lime, ginger, and yellow apple. Its soft finish makes it highly suitable for sipping by itself as an aperitif. However, I also found it matched well with cut fruit and light hors d'oeuvres.
Although this sparkling wines is from Spain, the French-sounding name gives it style away. It is an elegant-style Spanish Cava made according to the traditional French "Méthode Champenoise," whereby fermentation takes place in the bottle, rather than in large tanks. Pale yellow with golden highlights, this offers fine and persistent bubbles, along with good acidity and balance. Subtle mature notes at the finish nicely highlight the fresh, floral and yellow fruit flavors.
