Well looks like we are all safe and Mean Irene has passed! So, what do we do with all of the leftover stock in the fridge!? A Sunday Funday is in order! We thought it would be fun to get a few $12 and under bottles of sparkling wines to try in case we should be stuck inside all day without power. Of course, thankfully that isn’t the case so a reason to taste them – Sunday Funday!
Here are a few tasted, are loved, and under $12! Of course I had to add in a ‘Go To’ favorite just for comfort in case Irene got really out of hand… Enjoy and hope everyone is safe and well for those along the East Coast who haven’t been hit yet.
Giovello Italy Cuvee Rose Spumante
I loved the bottle and logo and was craving a sparkling rose and this jumped right out at me. Only $12 this wine totally blew me away with it’s refreshing taste, lively bubbles and its vibrantly dry yet ripened fruity taste! A beautiful color and great to serve as an apéritif with a bit of cheese and almonds.
Voveti Prosecco NV
This was another great $12 bottle for it’s taste! The Italian Prosecco was very fruity and had these tiny bubbles that lasted all the way through to the finish. A green apple taste with hints of ripe peach made us forget about any sort of hurricane coming! A incredible length for a Prosecco and price!
Mionetto Prosecco Brut NV
Another great Prosecco, one which could be considered my ‘go to’ and great for mimosas is the Mionetto. It also has tiny long lasting bubbles and has a lovely tart, green apple taste. Full of citrus and a bit dry this tastes very close to a champagne but you mustn’t let it sit in your glass for too long as the bubbles start to fade. A GREAT Prosecco for a brunch party especially if you are serving mimosas for lots of people because it’s only $10!
