Don’t mind Cinzano drinks, so interesting to find this Sparkling by this company. At first pour, some sourness comes out in the nose and taste with lots of citrus notes. With time, some sweetness does come out to balance things. Nice decent dryness in the mouthfeel with very mild yeast lingering in the aftertaste. Nothing special, but some nice fruitiness that makes this easy-going bubbly a local find that is alright to have from time to time, when nothing else is found.

This Italian Sparkling starts off with the typical yeast aromas, which disappear after breathing and releases a sweet, sugary nose with apples and hints of dryness. This continues in the taste without being way too sweet, with notes of peaches and honey. The body is still thicker than wanted, not helping the dry mouthfeel, but at least not too, too syrupy. Because of this, needs to be real cold to enjoy. Not our favorite to drink this way, but overall well-balanced for a simple, easy-drinking Sparkling. Enjoy real, real cold.

Costa Farnel Prosecco

This Italian Extra Dry Prosecco Sparkling starts off on a wrong note with the cork breaking at the bottom and leaving some pieces around the opening. The bottle is wider than most, so it holds well, but it pours all over. It does smell like cork a bit, but the yeast helps out. Sweet grapes with a little sourness. Even candy strawberries and vanilla after breathing. Pretty much the same for the taste. Not very dry, so goes down easily, but lacking a little blending between the sweetness, fruitiness and the light sourness. And the wood hints from the cork (even though not super corked) are not very pleasant.
