N/V Martellozzo Veneto Prosecco

This was a Christmas gift, so I'm not sure of the price, but the assumption is the giver did not pull a Michael Scott and this is in the $10-$15 range.

A fruity gum sort of nose – like a peach flavored gum.

Light body with a good amount of fizz. A bit of apple and grapefruit – a rather crisp bottle, good acid, a touch of sugar, a thoroughly enjoyable bottle.

Some honeydew qualities come through on the finish.

We haven't had a lot of luck with Prosecco, but this one I'm enjoying – if I recall, many Proseccos have an unripe tropical fruit stickiness that doesn't work, but this is light, crisp, and easy drinking all around.

Wine: 6.5
Value: Sure

That label looks suspiciously like the one sold at Trader Joe's for $6-7 a bottle, and it's a good value at that price. We've been enjoying 2 or 3 bottles a week of the NV Mionetto Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut, which we get at our local Costco for $9.99. It has excellent intensity and delivers everything we could ask for in such a modestly priced sparkler. Try it if you run across it; I think you might like it! (Disclaimer: I have no ties whatsoever with Mionetto, just like their products.)

Quoted you guys again today. I quite liked this one, too! I got less fruit, more floral, but it was great.
