Break Out the Bubbly

Share This!

SPBIS141September brings many wedding anniversaries and plenty of other occasions to celebrate with bubbly. But please, not Prosecco!

Well, if that’s your reaction, maybe it’s time to try a good one. Bisol is an important producer of Prosecco in the prime region of Valdobbiadene in Italy’s Veneto region. They produce a wide variety of categories ranging from $15-$70. If $70 strikes you as a bit high, get in closer to the ground floor and taste what a quality product, one that actually refreshes and tantalizes, can offer.

Bisol ‘Crede’ Valdobbiadene, Prosecco Superiore DOCG Non-Vintage $23-$25 srp

Almost clear, lightly greenish tint. A small, clean bubble greets you with fresh impressions of apple, pear and a lemony-almond-floral mix. There’s good mineral cut on the bouquet vibrantly drawing you in. Flavors are refreshing, suggesting peaches. The mouth feel is creamy but finely etched acids on the finish invigorate. (Predominantly Glera, with smaller amounts of Pinot Bianco and Verdiso grapes.) Drink now.
