It has been quite awhile since last I posted. I apologize profusely for the extreme delay, but I had a darned good (some might say extreme) reason. I was presented with a surprise – a big surprise – health challenge. Thus, as you might imagine, that subject has taken pretty much all my focus for a time. It also prevented me from enjoying adult beverages for a bit.
Now that things are looking a tad brighter, I thought I’d pop a bottle of bubbly stuff to celebrate. (Don’t worry, I have the doctors’ blessings) So …. Cheers!
Varietal: Prosecco (Glera)
Appellation: Prosecco DOC, Italy
Notes: On the nose of this extremely pale sparkling wine I caught a very sharp citrus scent. On the tongue I thought acidity was good and the body characteristically light. Flavors consisted of a citrus core with hints of almond and toast. It was quite bubbly. I’d even call it aggressively effervescent – almost too much for me. Even so, I was more than pleased to have the opportunity to let it prick my tongue and tickle my nose.
