Mionetto Il Prosecco

Price: $13.95
Made in: Italy
By: Mionetto S.P.A.

Pretty surprised that this bottle had no cork. Only a beer bottle cap. Was expecting an explosion and then, a huge overflow. But no. Nothing. Had time to take the cap off slowly that was attached by a sticker strip. Once poured, looked like a regular sparkling with a bubbly head. The nose gets stronger as it warms up, showing some sharp dry grapes with hints of sweetness, even honey. Dry mouthfeel, but nicely balanced. The taste is lighter than what the scent gives out. Still, good citrus, apples with mild sourness and some sweetness. The yeast is almost hidden. Quite surprise at this one. Especially for the the price and being from Italy.
