Winery: Villa Granda
Bottling: NV Pinot Prosecco (75% Pinot Bianco, 15% Prosecco, 10% Pinot Nero)
Estimated Retail Price: $12
Purchase Details: Purchased for $11.99 plus tax at K&L Wine Merchants in the South of Market neighborhood.
Tasting Notes: In the glass, a watermelon bubble gum pinkish tint. On the nose, aromas of white roses, fresh peaches and a little yeast. In the mouth, the aromas of peaches, white roses and yeast are echoed as flavors. Nice and tangy, with a hint of nuts and almond on the finish.
Nothing says fun like rose and bubbles during the summer. This pinot prosecco is a unique and fun libation that will surely be a crowd pleaser for both its appearance and of course, its flavor.
Food Pairing & Context in Which to Enjoy: This is a great choice as either an aperitif or as a welcome wine to kick off a summer picnic at the beach.
Winery & Other Background Information: Ok, so we bought this wine purely because the bottle looked so pretty. I admit it, some times we buy a bottle or two purely on aesthetics. Luckily one of the K&L associates said despite its snazzy, attractive packaging, the wine is actually good. You can’t always say that about wines that have “cute” labels as a replacement for the actual plonk that’s in the bottle.
