Zonin Prosecco Cuvée 1821 Brut

LCBO#: 277186
Price: $14.95
Made in: Italy
By: Casa Vinicola Zonin SPA

Fresh mild apple aromas that are not too sweet, nor too sour, with light sugars or sweet yeast balancing things. The same for flavours, mild apples with a short finish. A little dryness, and not syrupy at all. Very easy to drink as pretty refreshing, with hints of citrus. Nothing special other than that, but nice for bubbly starters.

Rating: 2.8/5

Zonin Prosecco Doc Special Cuvée

20121216-144319.jpgSAQ#: 10540721
Price: $15.15
Made in: Veneto, Italy
By: Zonin S.P.A.
Varietal: Sparkling White

This affordable Italian sparkling has a full nose with grapes, lemon zest, yeast, notes of pears and some sweetness found in cheaper bubbly. A nice creamy white coating tops the wine. Unfortunately, the taste does not live up to this. At first. Sourness, grapes and a quick finish with very light yeast and tart lingering. Really boring, really. After just a bit, some more citrus flavours come out, but still not enough to save this one. At least nothing offensive.
