Are you excited? You should be! Because it is Wine of The Week! WooHoo! Yay! Can you tell I am excited about this week’s wine? Well I am. And that probably has something to do with it being a prosecco- and I love a little bubbly. I love this suggestion from David (our sommelier), because it feels like the perfect way to usher in spring after a particularly intense winter (okay, may we don’t get snow here in LA- but we had torrential rain for about a week!).
So as not to keep you suspense, the suggestion is the Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco, N.V., Veneto Italy. Unlike many of its counterparts this is not an overly sweet prosecco. Instead, David describes it as “very refreshing with notes of peach and toast” (yes, he said toast, as in bread… I double-checked the description!). At the link above it costs about $18, but I have seen it elsewhere for less. But even at $18, David assures, “It is really yummy for the price.”
