I preferred this version to the regular version although both are good.  This seems to have more weight and complexity but your mileage may vary.  Blended from Glera and Pinot  Noir grapes in Friuli and the Veneto.  They both have the same attractive style packaging.  Pale salmon pink with silvery hues in color.  A large amount of medium sized bubbles.  On the nose, aromas of strawberries, oranges and minerality.  A lovely texture with only 11.5% abv.  Medium acidity.  On the palate, flavors of strawberries and oranges with underlying minerality.  Clean, long finish with apple notes.  This

This is a very nice Prosecco from northern Italy.  These have become trendy in recent years for drinking on their own and using in cocktails.  It comes in an attractive shaped curved bottle.  Pale, silvery gold in color, clear and bright.  There is a fair amount of medium sized bubbles giving the wine a nice frothiness.  Aromas of peach, and green apples.  Slightly sweet.  On the palate, this has green apples, and orange zest  with good acidity.  A bit of bitter almonds on the midpalate turn to a long green apple finish.  This drinks well on its own and will work well with cheese or eve lig

From the heart of Prosecco country in northeasy Italy, this is a serious Prosecco.  Made from 85% Glera with the remaining 15% other varietals.  Pale silvery/gold in color.  Lots of smaller bubbles.  The nose has minerals and Vernors soda (sort of carmelized ginger and seltzer).  It has a bigger presence.  Ginger and mineral notes, slightly candied.  Not tart, but well balanced.  Almost dry.  Long finish.  This drinks well on its own but will work better with food.  Fried chicken would be a nice choice.  A real crowd pleaser.

This is a blend of 85% Glera and 15% Pinot Nero grapes made in an extrad dry style (which means a bit sweeter than Brut).  Pale pink in color with lots of smaller bubbles.  On the nose, there are cranberries, and rhubarb with some Fuji apple notes.  The palate turns more to cherries with good acidity.  Long finish.  This is pretty much dry.  Very nice on its own, it will work well with lighter salads.  Drink over the next couple years.

This is a Prosecco from the Friuli region in northeast Italy.  It is made from 85% Glera and 15% other grapes including Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay. Silvery green/gold in color.  Some medium bubbles make a nice frothy head.  On the nose, limes, minerals and lanolin along with a bit of sweaty earthiness give it a nice nose.  On the palate, the fruit shifts to a more tart green apple note.  Good acidity.  Nice frothy mouth-feel.  This has a sweet and sour quality that is enjoyable.  Very food friendly.  This drinks well on its own, but  will work very well with salty or fried foods.

This comes in an attractive bottle showing "Romeo & Juliet's Wall" where "5,000 love messages" are left daily.  The wine it self is light green/gold in color.  The nose has a nice minerality with lemons.  A nice mousse of medium sized bubbles.  On the palate, there is a moderate fizz.  Slight lemony notes with good minerality.  Nice acidity.  The wine comes off as dry with no noticeable residual sugar.  It has a long finish.  Very fresh.  This is a tasty wine that will work for most foods or on its own.  It has some depth to it and is more than just a simple quaff.  It probably should b

Everyone knows this label but how many people have actually tried it.  This was served to a group of casual wine lovers and proved to be very popular.  Very, very pale silvery gold in color.  Almost like water.  The nose is nice but it did take about 20 minutes to open.  Minerals, slight peach and slight ginger ale.  On the palate, this is dry with nice minerality.  It starts out tight but picks up on the mid-palate.  Slightly sour in a good way on the long finish.  It really begs for some salty food.  For $10, this is a nice value.

Light silvery gold in color.  The nose is nice with mostly pears but also some lemons and nice mineral undertones.  A fair amount of medium sized bubbles.  On the palate, this is slightly sweet.  It drinks easy.  The lemon carries thru along with slight minerality.  Very food friendly.  Easy drinking, not complex but enough to stand up with food.  Good end of the day/start the evening wine.
