My husband returned from day 1 of the NYS Bar Exam exhausted but in good spirits. Not quite the monumental occasion as when he completes the 2 day exam [or finds out he’s passed], I still fancied a small token of celebratory fizziness for us, so I gave a pour to Mionetto Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. Founded in 1887 by Francesco Mionetto in the village of Valdobbiadene just north of Venice, the estate has been producing Prosecco for over 120 years. It has established itself as the most popular brand of Prosecco in the U.S. committed to providing “the American wine lover with new and innovative styles of wine”. Although Mionetto does have a few certified organic wines [Mionetto Organic Prosecco Treviso], many of their grapes are grown using organic methods, as most of their farmers do not use chemicals, and all of their wines are suitable for vegans.The grapes for the Valdobbiadene were sourced from vineyards located on the border of the esteemed Cartizze region.
Pale straw in colour with aromas of clean minerals and vegetal notes. The light, fizzy body shimmered with golden apple and pear flavours whilst traces of honey and steely minerals comprised the dry, crisp finish. Refined and easy drinking with well balanced flavours and bubbles, this is a fantastic companion to light dishes or all on its own.
