Villa Teresa Frizzanti Prosecco Veneto – NV

OK, the taste of the Zonin got my brain fully into the spring warmth and the want of Prosecco. After a nice day at Eat Vancouver and Yaletown Brew Pub, it was time to return to the patio with a nice taste of Prosecco.

In the Vancouver market, the Villa Teresa seems to be the most readily available Prosecco, and it’s organic status doesn’t hurt sales, I am sure. It has a nice straw yellow color with small beckoning bubbles after you pop the cool trigger closure. The nose is a nice lemon and mineral followed with some tasty melon on the palate. This and some sunshine = bliss. Light and refreshing, there’s more citrus and a crisp finish – you could drink this any time of the day. Good stuff.

Great value too.

Zonin Prosecco Brut NV

Hot weather means crisp whites, rosés, and of course sparklers. This past weekend, the debate was between some of the tasty Znovin Classic, or this Prosecco. Of course logic prevailed and we started with the Zonin and moved to the Znovin.

I love Prosecco, and this one is at the low end of the price scale, so I figured it was worth a go. It has the classic light, fine bubbles along with nice lemon and mineral in the first few sniffs, then some nice pear and apple as we sipped away. It finished up with some light flowers and more tart lemon.

This is a nice bottle of Prosecco, and I’ll be certainly having a few different ones over the next few weeks.
