Mionetto Prosecco Organic D.O.C. Treviso [NV]

I found myself fancying a bubbly glass in preparation of joining my husband’s family at a restaurant for Sunday brunch. As it was slightly in the earlier part of the day, I wanted a glass that was not only effervescent, but also considerably light and refreshing. Chilling in my fridge was the befitting selection of Mionetto Prosecco Organic D.O.C. Treviso [NV]. The Mionetto family of wines has been producing Prosecco since 1887; today it is the most popular brand of Prosecco in the US. Last year Wine Enthusiast bestowed Mionetto with the “2011 Importer of the Year” Award. In addition to it being organically produced free of pesticides and fertilizers, the carbon footprint was further lightened by the bottle, label and shipping materials all being made from recycled materials.

Pale straw in colour, light airy aromas of sunny orange blossoms rose from my glass. The golden apple and pear flavours in the body merged effortlessly into the mineral and apricot finish. Dry and crisp, the mineral acidity contributed to its refreshing sensibility. This is an easy drinking bubbly that is fantastic on its own, with a light meal, at a party or at home [a few supplemental drops of Chambord is a marvelous accessory as well].
