Mionetto Cuvee Sergio Prosecco
Non-Vintage Sparkling Wine from Veneto, Italy
A cuvée that successfully introduces emotions and the special unmistakable flavor of wine skillfully produced to enhance the characteristics of the native grape varieties of a unique area, at the foot of the Pre-alps of Veneto, where Mionetto has been based since 1887. These flavors and aromas have disappeared over the years but now Mionetto are reintroducing them in this excellent cuvée.
A delicate pale yellow color, with a characteristic aroma that blends with hints of honey and crab apples. It is dry and pleasantly slightly bitter on the palate. Lean due to the right level of acidity, it is moderately full-bodied with a fine and intense perlage.
A balanced, smooth and refreshing sparkling wine that is ideal for any occasion, thanks to its moderate alcohol content and versatility. It is best served with simple light fish or vegetable dishes. It is an excellent aperitif accompanied by savory tarts or more delicate finger food such as shrimp vol-au-vent.
Wine Enthusiast - "This sparkler’s aromatic nose provides floral scents and a touch of anise. The rich, creamy mouthfeel ends slightly sweet, making this an enjoyable beverage with a unique style. Has enough depth to match with oysters or lobster."
Founded in 1887 by Francesco Mionetto in the small village of Valdobbiadene, Mionetto has an established reputation for quality, tradition and innovation. In the heart of the Prosecco region, Mionetto produces exceptional wines with consistent national and international acclaim. View all Mionetto Wines
Notable FactsThe wine of Soave is most common white wine made here. Occasionally you can find an exceptional Soave, but for the most part the wine is easy-drinking and refreshingly pleasant. For the reds, the most popular are Amarone and Valpolicella – both made primarily from the good structured Corvina grape. While Amarone is always made in the recioto method (drying out the grapes to intensify the flavor), Valpolicella has a few different levels. Amarone is made from very ripe grapes, which are then dried and then pressed, producing an opulent, concentrated, full-bodied wine that has a distinctive and powerful taste that stays with you. Not for the lighter fare meal, this wine is almost port-like and delicious with cheese and/or dessert. Valpolicella can also be made in the recioto method, but it's more often found in a dry style – the wine goes up in rank, from Valpolicella to Valpolicella Classico to Valpolicella Classico Superiore. And finally, the bubbly of Veneto – Prosecco. Made from the same-named grape, Prosecco is less fizzy than Champagne and occasionally has a slight sweetness. It's absolutely delicious as a value aperitif.
A little ditty about Italy...This country has about as many wines as its had governments. With 20 different regions, hundreds of DOCs and even more indigenous varieties, the amount of wine made in Italy is mind-boggling. Most of the juice, however, remains in the country for thirsty Italians. Wine is food in Italy and its rare that a meal is consumed without a glass of vino. That said, it's not common to find many folks drinking wine without food either. In turn, it's a match, and a mighty good one at that. In fact, it's safe to say that Italian wine is a foodie wine – one that goes on the table for a myraid of meals.
For regions, the most popular are Tuscany (home of Chianti), Piedmont and the Tre-Venezie, which includes Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige and Friuli. Other communes of note are in Southern Italy, and a few good wines are made elsewhere in the country. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily are members of the Italian winemaking community as well.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
