Umberto Bortolotti Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut

Cantine Umberto Bortolotti Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut NV

Umberto Bortolotti's exquisite line of Proseccos, their non-vintage Valdobbiadene Brut is the sweetest of the line, all have feature attractive creaminess at the core and a mousse that is notably finer than most Proseccos I've tasted. It opens with a garland of white flowers, acacia honey and honeydew melon. Here, the creaminess is upfront, gradually subsiding to a saline-flecked mineral finish. 7 g/l, 11.5% ABV | Sample Cantine Umberto Bortolotti 9.0 Points...

Rive Di S. Stefano Montagnole

Cantine Umberto Bortolotti Rive Di S. Stefano Montagnole Valdobbiadene 2016

Umberto Bortolotti's stylish 2016 Rive Di S. Stefano Montagnole Valdobbiadene qualifies as one of the best Proseccos I've had in recent memory. Aromas of fresh Williams pear, green apple, and white grapefruit pith are held aloft by ultra-fine, diaphanous bubbles. At 2 g/l residual sugar, it feels perceptibly dry and crisp. Calcium-rich marl limestone soils have contributed to this wine's textural finesse and finish, amply infused with pear and old marine bones. 11.7% ABV | Sample Cantine Umberto Bortolotti 9.1 Points ...

Cantine Umberto Bortolotti Piai Alto Valdobbiadene Rive Di Rolle 2016

Cantine Umberto Bortolotti Piai Alto Valdobbiadene Rive Di Rolle 2016

From a single 2.65 ha parcel on the steep slopes of the Rive DOCG, the 2016 Umberto Bortolotti Piai Alto Valdobbiadene Rive Di Rolle is awash with delicate, tender aromas of acacia flowers, acacia honey, that swirl 'round white peach and Asian pear. It's round and creamy upfront, with a delicate honeyed character that can be felt on the nose, and all the way through to a meandering finish. 13.2 g/l, 11.6% ABV | Sample Cantine Umberto Bortolotti 8.9 Points  ...

La Marca Prosecco NV

La Marca Prosecco NV

La Marca Prosecco is a tasteful addition to any holiday table. A torrent of clinquant bubbles adds sparkle and elan to delicate aromas of yellow apple, lemon, white flowers, and acacia honey. This is a spritely, medium-bodied Prosecco graced with bright acidity, creamy texture, and a welcome burst of subtle minerality twining a pleasant bittersweet peach pit note on the finish. 11.29% ABV | Sample La Marca Prosecco 8.9 Points...

La Marca Prosecco NV

New Years on a budget? Consider La Marca's charming Prosecco. Lemon drop, apple blossom, acacia honey, and fresh marshmallow tumble from the glass, held aloft on a torrent of bubbles. The palate feels perceptibly drier than one might expect given the aromatic profile. Acidity keeps it light and lively, accenting the finish—a subtle mineral edge twining and a pleasant bittersweet twinge of peach pit. Sample Cantine LaMarca 8.9 Points...

Piccini Vino Spumante Extra Dry NV

Piccini Vino Spumante Extra Dry NV

A straightforward Prosecco made in the Charmat method from the Treviso province. Piccini's Vino Spumante Extra Dry is bright and lively with notes of freshly cut yellow apples and cheery meadow flowers. On the palate, fine bubbles and a dash of citrus race across a lovely acid spine. It's very pleasant and very quaffable. A fine, but not perfect pairing with a Sunday brunch of Quiche au Fromage and salad topped with cut apples, raspberries, pecans and raspberry vinaigrette. 11.0% ABV Sample Tenute Piccini Srl 8.8 Points...

Carpenè Malvolti Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore Extra Dry Prosecco NV

Carpenè Malvolti Conegliano Valdobbiadene Superiore Extra Dry Prosecco NV

I picked up a dainty and modestly priced half bottle of Prosecco for lunch. It's lightly perfumed with ripe d'Anjou pear and white peach along with the faintest top note of dried honey and wildflowers. I appreciate that it's extra dry—as it comes across as less sappy than is typical for Prosecco, with a bit more of a lively, crisp bite. There is even a suggestion of minerality on the finish.
