It is time for another wine moment with Delaina.
I had a need for celebration gift this week, and as the beautiful blue bottled Villa Carlotti Prosecco was not in stock at Trader Joes (or anywhere else that I called) I had to try another Prosecco. I needed a Prosecco that would impress and show my gratitude, so I spent a little more than I do normally. The Prosecco I chose was Mionetto Prosecco D.o.c. Treviso – Brut. Click to check out the Mionetto Website.
This sparkling Italian wine cost $9.99 at Trader Joe’s and offers a sophisticated apple essence. The tag that comes on the bottle implies a hint of “golden apple.” The Mionetto is dry in comparison to the Villa Carlotti; yet offers a soft-smooth finish that has the taste buds longing for more.
As I have said, I prefer Proseccos to other highly charged and overly sweet sparkling wines. I would say that this Mionetto Prosecco would be in competition with the much higher price Champagnes. Mionetto’s light, dry, and sophisticated flavors and balance would pair nicely with cheese and of course Italian dishes, like Kris’s Meatless Monday Meal Go Italian. I would recommend the Mionetto Prosecco for a nice gift or for your own celebratory events.
