Several months ago, I mentioned on Twitter that I was having difficulty finding a kosher sparkling wine that was drinkable, much less enjoyable. Kosher Wine Review recommended the Deccolio Prosecco, and I’m so glad I took the suggestion. I’m a big believer that sparkling wine can be opened any day of the week, so not needing an excuse, I decided to open a bottle one night after work.

The Deccolio Prosecco (winery) is from Italy. The wine was a light golden yellow with a lot of good bubbles. On the nose, there were Granny Smith apples, oranges, and hints of white flowers. In the mouth, there were Granny Smith apples, citrus fruits—oranges and lemons—and a hint of flowers and honey. The bubbly had light-to-medium body and bright acidity.

Is this worth a glass after work? Definitely!  If you see this wine in the store, grab it; you won’t be disappointed. At $14, this dry sparkling wine is exactly what I want in an everyday bottle of bubbly, and I recommend it even if you’re not looking for a kosher wine. It’s simple, food-friendly, and refreshing. My one word of caution is that it is very drinkable. I got so carried away with catching up with Hubby about my day, enjoying dinner, and then relaxing in the evening that before I knew it, I was several glasses in on a work night. Ooops!

Question of the Day: Will you open up a sparkling wine any day of the week or is it a special occasion type of wine for you?
