Montelliana, Prosecco Extra Dry, N.V.

4/5 $13.00

Sometimes I really wonder if there is anything better than a lightly fizzy (those in the know call that “frizzante”) Prosecco. Italy has the monopoly on these fabulous grapes, and in the case of this one from Montelliana, they showcase them so well. With bright, vibrant flavors as well as a nice balanced fruity taste, this wine would pair amazingly with light appetizers or a cheese plate. The wine actually has some nuttiness to it, which is particularly why cheese makes sense (experience helps me here too, as I did try this wine with some great cheese). Being that this one is “Extra Dry,” it really is a bit drier than your average Prosecco, but I think this makes it even more pleasing. Highly recommend this sparkling wine when you are looking for solid quality at a great price.

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
