Summer time is on the way in which – so it’s time to place away our hearty reds and attain for one thing lighter. What an ideal time to attempt three new Proseccos which are making their solution to our shores. A preferred Italian glowing wine, Prosecco deserves severe (or critically frivolous) consideration for its high quality bubbles, fruit ahead character, and cheap worth level in comparison with Champagne.
Let’s give these three a attempt.
NV Ca’ di Prata Prosecco Brut DOC – This Prosecco is pale straw in coloration, with ample, high quality bubbles. On the nostril, it’s fairly closed off, providing mild lemon notes and a contact of yeast. The palate is a little more open, however nonetheless reserved with lemon and inexperienced apple notes. The wine has medium acidity and is pretty dry, which I loved greater than the sweetness that we regularly discover in Proseccos that attain the USA. This isn’t a fancy wine, however it’s gratifying and can pair properly with lighter fare. B / $16
2019 Ca’ di Prata Prosecco Rosé Further Dry Millesimato DOC – Though glowing rosé has been produced within the Prosecco area of Italy for a very long time, it is just since November 2020 that it was granted Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) standing. This DOC rosé is 85% Glera and 15% Pinot Noir (referred to as Pinot Nero in Italy) and pours a really pale pink coloration. On the nostril and palate this wine pretty bursts with pretty strawberry coupled with a contact of floral character. It has medium acidity, a contact of sweetness, and a gentle stream of tiny bubbles. The end is surprisingly lengthy and fairly good because the strawberry notes slowly dissipate. Though it’s a bit one dimensional (did I point out the strawberries?), it’s superb, and at this worth level, a positive winner. B+ / $17
NV Ca’ di Prata Valdobbiadene Further Dry DOCG – This barely higher-end Prosecco is straw-colored within the glass, this Prosecco provides a gentle stream of additional high quality bubbles. On the nostril, it’s fairly restrained, providing mild lemon, melon, and a contact of sweetness. The palate follows with lemon, melon, and sweetness balanced by some minerality and a bracing acidity. The weather are in steadiness, and the value level makes this a wonderful purchase, however talking only for myself, this Prosecco simply didn’t excite me as a lot because the less complicated and easily extra gratifying rosé.
