Riondo Pink Prosecco 2011
Remember that episode of The Simpsons when Homer asks Apu if he has any of that "Skittlebrau- you know, the beer with skittles in it?" This is a cute bottle, complete with a big AS SEEN ON THE TODAY SHOW tag, so I could see why someone brought it to a ladies only cocktail hour, where I tasted it. People seem to universally like bubbly, but no one at all liked this one. It tastes like the wine with skittles in it. Or the bottom of a strawberry watermelon Sno Cone made by someone who thought you were cute, so they poured extra syrup over it. Throw this one out, or, if you can't bear to waste wine, give it to your kids.
Girly, light - am I missing something? Wine reminds me of a pleasantly silly friend fr childhood you (someone inexplicably) still keep in touch with. Enjoy on summery forgetful day
I can hear the men in the crowd now: “Pink wine is for chicks.” Well, there are tens of millions of European men who would beg to differ. Granted, many of the wines are full of fruit and so fresh that they should be slapped, but when it comes to hot summer days, a big oaky red wine is not welcome to the summer dinner table. It’s like wearing a wool coat to a pool party. Park your pink perceptions for a moment and try this wine. This lightly pink and bubbly Prosecco comes with a shiny tassel closure and a pink box it comes in. Let’s face it, this producer is targeting women. On the nose it’s full of strawberry and cherry, and the palate is loaded with tart red fruits and citrus like key lime, and even has a nice watermelon finish. Unlike many Prosecco wines, this one is frizzante (lightly sparkling) and thoroughly refreshing, and at 10.5% alcohol you can drink this baby all day long. Serve this wine cool, but not cold – at 50-60 degrees, the fruit really shows well and will delight your senses. Perfect pairings: Serve this sparkler with grilled shrimp or scallops marinated in lime & garlic, or a salad of greens, shaved fennel, orange and walnuts. Also great as an aperitif with marcona almonds and mild, nutty cheeses like aged pecorino or parmigiano Cin Cin! Michael www.dalluva.com/wine-journal
Swapped the Korbel with a few bottles of these for Thanksgiving dinner. Family loved it. Sweet lemons.
Not too sweet, not as effervescent as champagne but a delightful,somewhat 'girly' wine. Very enjoyable and will likely appeal to a diverse group of people.
