Tesoro Della Regina – Prosecco, NV

  • Basic info: Tesoro Della Regina, Prosecco, Italy, No Vintage
  • Type: White bubbly – Prosecco
  • Price estimate: $5 – split bottle from Total Wine
  • Look: Very pale yellow, almost clear in color with fine bubbles
  • Smell: yeast, apple and a little candied pineapple
  • Taste: Crisp, bubbly, tart. green apple and pear with a little sweet note on the back end.
  • Conclusions: I really liked this one. It had just a touch of sweetness to offset the tartness, but it wasn’t a sweet wine at all. It was lovely to drink by itself, but it would also make a great mimosa.
  • Other notes: I picked this up on a whim at Total wine. I’ve had wine from this producer before and I’ve generally liked them, so when I saw the small bottle, I decided to go for it. I intended to hold off on any sparkling wines until I could do a full comparison – Champaign, American sparkling, Cava, Prosecco and Lambrusco – but am having a hard time finding the Lambrusco. Now that the weather is cooler, I might try the old internet order for this, but for now, I’ll go with this bottle. It was the perfect size to celebrate something (passing my state exam in this case) on a weekday. IMG_20170927_190925.jpg
