Cinzano Prosecco Veneto IGT NV

External Review by Palm Bay International:

At the heart of the world’s favorite spirited beverages you will find Cinzano, recognized by its signature blue and red label and 250-year tradition of excellence. With classic appeal and versatile brands, Cinzano’s legacy is sure to continue for generations to come. In 1757, CINZANO’s two brothers, Giovanni Giacomo and Carolo Stefano Cinzano, Master Distillers, opened a small shop in Turin where a dream soon became a reality. As their traditional Vermouth production rapidly increased, so did their reputation for quality. The Savoy monarchs beckoned the brothers’ expertise to create a sparkling wine to emulate the popular French Champagne of the early 19th century. The result was the birth of Cinzano Sparkling Wines in 1850. The Cinzano range of sparkling wines includes both sweet and dry versions, each with their own unique characteristics. Production Area Veneto, Italy Grape Varieties 100% Prosecco Vinification This sparkling wine is created with the Italian Charmat method, with fermentation in stainless steel tanks which is then followed by shorter secondary fermentation in sealed tanks. The wine is then promptly bottled and released to preserve freshness. This method is used in order to create fruity style sparkling wines that have an intense varietal character. Color Bright straw yellow with fast moving bubbles Bouquet An intense aroma of flowers and hints of apples Taste A fresh, fruity and crisp sparkling wine with medium acidity and attractive notes of green apple and melon. Bright on the finish. Alcohol 11% Serving Suggestions Enjoy as an aperitif or for any event or celebration. A delicious match for appetizers and light entrees, including salads and charcuterie platters. Enjoy in an Aperol Spritz! (3 parts Cinzano Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol, 1 splash of soda)

Prosecco - WineSkinny.com/ Easy to like, with its light, crisp apple and peach aromas and flavors. Worked on its own, but also in a POM bellini!

Lunetta Prosecco - 87 Points & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits/ More mineral than fruity, this is nutty, soft and easy to drink. Its bubbles will melt right into smoky speck.

Lunetta Prosecco - Wall Street Journal / ...Other favorites included the Lunetta from Cavit…whose Prosecco was a delightful surprise. This tastes the most like Champagne to me. .. this crisp, refreshing Prosecco, made in the Trentino region from hand-harvested grapes, is an excellent buy.

The Spirited Glass/ Our first oyster, a Conway from just off Prince Edward Island on Canada's Atlantic coast, was a bold, briny little beast with a slightly wild flavor. We washed it down with a glass of Lunetta Prosecco. The sweet sparkler seemed to embrace the oyster's aftertaste on our palate, carrying it away with our first swallow.
