Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most 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%.
Nino Franco's non-vintage sparkling Rustico Prosecco is unquestionably the world's finest value in a high quality, Champagne look-alike. The non-vintage, light-bodied Prosecco di Valdobiaddene Rustico offers gorgeously elegant, fresh, lively fruit, notes of bread dough and citrus, and persistent effervescence.
"Tasted at the Gambero Rosso showcase in London. This has a very clean, but also very subtle nose with touches of greengage and white peach. The palate has lovely balance, an utterly seductive leesy/creamy texture and a smooth finish that leave the palate refreshed and wanting more."
The Wine Advocate
"The golden color and peach nectar scent predict this to be rich, but a potent, nutty savor keeps it balanced. It finishes clean, tight and grippy - a mouthwatering aperitif."
Wine & Spirits
This is NOT Champagne. Good prosecco should be fresh, fruity, bubbly and fun. This one is one of my favorites; tends to be cleaner and more refreshing than some sweeter-style proseccos, with really tight bubbles, which is uncommon amongst the majority of proseccos. Best enjoyed before dinner, on a warm day with friends, or during a picnic lunch.
Iam not a expert on wine but it was wonderful not too bitter and not too sweet!
An every day favorite for bubbles. Light, crispy, mildly fruity. During the summer, I add berries to the glass for an extra treat. I definitely recommend this prosecco.
The king of prosecco ... which is the king of light summer whites
Well-balanced; nice mineral flavors
I actually am toasting with this wine on New years eve. It is affordable, pleasant and a delight to drink.
...^^^ I meant Roederer non-vintage from Champagne, not the "Estate"
Some liked this better than the Roederer Estate we ordered at the same time. Not me, but this was pretty good and less than half the cost.
A slight bitterness and not much interest, not as refreshing as it could be, generally a bit dull, though not terrible for the price
Will have to try this one again. I certainly did not agree with the 90 points it has been given. Lacks great aroma and felt harsh in the mouth. This one just wasn't up where I expected it to be, but I will give it another honest effort.
I was unimpressed by this champagne. It did not have any memorable flavors.
