It’s A Head Snapper Prosecco

I know the bubbles/bubbly wine writing challenge is past, but I wanted to post this anyway.  First, though, many congratulations to Traveling Wine Chick for coming out on top in the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge #27!  Her entry is quite an enjoyable piece.  If you haven’t read it, I recommend it.  Click HERE to view.  This post won’t be as fullsome or as well phrased, but it will be about bubbles nonetheless.

Winemaker:  It’s A Headsnapper
Varietal:  Prosecco
Vintage:  NV
Appellation:  Prosecco DOC, Italy
Price:  $12.00

Notes:  At 11% alcohol, this light straw-colored bubbly was a tad sweet.  It had good acidity, a light heft on the palate, and a bouquet of nectarine with floral notes and a hint of cream.  At least that’s what I smelled.  I can only share with you what my nose told me.  Flavors were gentle as was the effervescence.  It seemed like a light citrusade to my taste buds – a mix of citrus.  It was pleasant, and I actually thought the tart flavors balanced the sweetness pretty well.  It’s simple.  It’s easy to drink.
