I’m finally emerging from 5 days of the Fall bug that decimated my office. My nose is still stuffy, so tasting wine is still on hold, but this break from opening new wines is giving me a chance to catch up on a few reviews that I haven’t had a chance to share. So, here is a bubbly to celebrate my being back to work and back to posting.
The Lunetta Prosecco (winery, snooth), which is part of the Cavit Collection,was a nice medium lemon with bubbles dancing all over the glass. On the nose, there were apple, lemon, and yellow grapefruit aromas, followed by the slightest hint of yeast. In the mouth, the Prosecco had a beautiful, citrusy freshness. The wine had a light body with a crisp acidity that lingered.
Is this worth a glass after work? Sure…you won’t be drinking anything out of the ordinary, but you’ll definitely have a decent, reliable glass of wine. At $9, this is a good sparkling wine that is perfect if you’re trying to watch your wallet or looking for “everyday” bubbles. The wine wasn’t very complex, but I don’t expect a lot of complexity from a Prosecco. That said, the flavors in the finish were disappointingly short, so if you’re willing to spend a little more money, you can get a sparkling wine that offers a little more than this one. Overall, though, you could definitely do worse. The Lunetta Prosecco was nice on its own and paired well with a citrus-and-ginger roasted chicken.
