Yes, it’s always time for bubbles, you know that even if you are not the biggest fan of fizz. I will address that soon, but the truth is that I am not a lover of sparkling wines. I tend to find them too sweet and a bit tiring to drink. The constant tickle of my nose makes me think it’s mustache trimming time (again?!?) and the scrubbing bubbles that seem to want to revisit my gullet again and again are a bit distracting for me.
That doesn’t mean I don’t keep a bottle or two around, you know for medicinal purposes on Sunday mornings. In those cases, I prefer Prosecco and more specifically Prosecco Frizzante, which is super gently carbonated. This more gentle carbonation makes the wines easy to drink and refreshing without getting in the way of the freshness of fruit that Prosecco is so well known for.
Two to Try:
Cortesia is my kind of pick me up. Gently fizzy and very pure, it’s a classic example of the Frizzante style.
If full on Prosecco is more your thing, the Toffoli is a great value.
