This is a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir grapes.  Salmon pink in color.  Frothy with a variety of sized bubbles.  The nose has strawberries and slight apple notes.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, there is nice acidity.  Slightly sweet.  Cherries and strawberries.  A lingering finish.  An enjoyable Prosecco with some depth as well.  Very nice on its own, this should work well with food.  It would go nicely with roasted turkey or duck.  Drink over the next couple of years.

This an Organic, semi-sparkling Prosecco from Italy.  It is made from 85% Glera grapes, with 15% other allowed varieties.  The packaging is attractive.  Silvery/green/gold in color with a good amount of frothy bubbles.  The nose has minerality and some salinity along with green apples.  Refreshing.  On the palate, the green apples come thru along with a bit of sweetness.  Nice acidity to balance that.  Good finish.  This is nice on its own and should work well at the beginning or end of a meal.  It will work nice with fired calamari and also a not too sweet pound cake.

This comes in an attractively packaged squat bottle with a wire cage for the cork (which makes a festive pop when opened).  Pale gold in color with some green hues, clear and bright.  There are a good amount of small bubbles.  The nose is nice with green apples and pears.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this is very refreshing.  Flavors of honeydew and slight lemons.  Slightly sweet.  Good acidity.  Nice finish.  This is a tasty, fun wine.  It drinks well on its own and would work with lighter foods and also fried foods such as Shishido Peppers.  Drink over the next year or two.

A very nice Prosecco.  11% abv according to the label.  100% Glera grapes.  Silvery gold in color, very foamy with lots of small bubbles.  Lots of effervescence.  On the nose plenty of limes, some golden delicious apples and minerality.  Crisp.  Refreshing.  Medium bodied.  Dry.  On the palate, apples and minerality.  Nice finish.  Very clean.   This drinks easily on its own and is very food friendly.  A nice way to start an evening with a classic artichoke dip but also Sushi if looking to change it up.  Try to buy the freshest bottles that you can.

Produced in northwest Italky and made from organic grapes, this is a very nice value in a dry Prosecco.  The label is a bit different utilizing a white (instead of yellow) label.  Gold/silver in color with a lot of smaller bubbles.  The nose has lots of minerality with apple and pear notes.  Medium bodied.  Dry.  On the palate, the minerality comes thru.  Some apples.  Clean finish.  This is very food friendly and will work with just about anything from sushi to pizza.  Drink over the next year.

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.
