Mionetto Prosecco Brut
|Italy, Veneto, Prosecco di Treviso
Pale green with a persistent froth. A whiff of sulfur blows off to reveal simple green apple and floral aromas.Bright and fresh, with uncomplicated flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with decent length and a hint of sweetness.
Fun and informal, this simple, lightly scented sparker has subtle aromas of apple that carry over to the racy palate along with a citrusy note. Brisk acidity gives it a crisp finish.
Mionetto's NV Prosecco Brut is a solid, reliable offering with good varietal character and balance. Still, it would be nice to see this large house make more ambitious wines. I recently saw Mionetto's Prosecco being poured in one of Manhattan's most fashionable hotel bars and couldn't help thinking that Prosecco can be so much more. If the region's top producers are truly serious about protecting the integrity of the Prosecco brand, the first place to start is by putting a higher quality product in the bottle. This is Lot: L10099. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2011.
Crisp acidity frames this light, floral Prosecco, which shows hints of peach skin and stone. Drink now.
