If you’re a Prosecco drinker but sometimes wish there was a dryer, more clean and crisp option, this limited edition Cuvee Anniversario is outstanding and absolutely worth checking out – and at $25 SRP, a great value.
- The tasting was led (in Italian) by Alessio Del Savio, Chief Winemaker at Mionetto and translated, with great humor and aplomb, by Enore Ceola, Managing Director and CEO of Mionetto USA.
- As you can see from all the glasses in the photo above, our tasting was comprehensive and we explored many different stages of Prosecco-making, culiminating in the Cuvee Anniversario tasting.
- My biggest learning, besides how extraordinary a pristine, bone-dry Prosecco can be, was that Proseccos are NOT AGED. If you do happen to be served a Prosecco that has a strong yellowish hue, send it back immediately, it means it’s old.
