Ringing In The New Year With Good Prosecco In Hand

IMG_9145

Though I drink fizz daily (try it, trust me), the stuff is pretty much a given for everyone ringing in the New Year, yeah? There are lots of sparkling wines to choose from across every price point and style. If you have Champagne tastes but a post-Christmas budget, think about Prosecco, serious Prosecco. Think single vineyard, steep sloped, “cru” Prosecco that is sustainably farmed on old vines rooted in poor, dry clay soils up 300-350 metres. The Adami family have been farming these soils for three generations, more than 90 years of experience in the terroir of Valdobbiadene [say it with me: val-dough-bee-add-den-nay]. Their dedication shows in dry, characterful wines like this one…

Col Credas Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene DOCG | Rive di Farra di Soligo | Prosecco, Veneto, Italy | $33

Brut (only 4 g/l RS) with tight green apple, light almond, faint white acacia, bitter citrus pith and stone. The nimble palate rips along with driving acidity, leaving just a bit of textured mineral stoniness in its fresh wake. Serious Prosecco, and seriously drinkable – at about half the price of Champagne. Saluti e felice anno nuovo!
