Say hello to Martini & Rossi sparkling wines: Martini & Rossi Prosecco and Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose!
Long a powerhouse in the European beverage world, it’s no surprise that M&R is a big fish in the ocean of sparkling wine out there. Bubblies are big and Prosecco is one of the hottest tickets in the world of sparkling wines. Last summer in London, my wife and I never walked into a pub without seeing a glass or a bottle of Prosecco on someone’s table. Loosely translated, I think Prosecco means “fun/festive/affordable” in Italian–if it doesn’t, it should…
Martini & Rossi Prosecco is considered “Extra Dry”–which strangely enough means it is not as dry as “Brut.” A nice bit of citrus acidity balances out the delicious fruit core of this little gem from Northeast Italy. (11.5% ABV) Ciao, Bella! 13.00
Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose Extra Dry blushes pink through its lively bubbles. A blend of Riesling Italico, Chardonnay, Glera (used to make Prosecco) with a touch of Nebbiolo (Italy’s iconic red grape), M&R Sparkling Rose displays tangy fruit and a clean finish. Perfect with robust cheeses. (11.5% ABV) 15.00
