Wine of the Day: Freixenet Prosecco DOC

Yes, you are reading correctly. Freixenet, one of the largest producers of Cava sparkling wine in Spain, begun by the Ferrer family over 150 years ago, is now making Prosecco. And, it is delicious.

Produced in the Prosecco DOC region of north-east Italy, in the classic Italian Charmat method, capturing freshness and liveliness. This 100% Glera fruit sparkler is lively, flirty, and very fun. Where traditional method, or Methode Champaniose, Cava is aged in the bottle over a period of time allowing the bubbles to be created through a second fermentation process, the Charmat method, using large stainless steel tanks for the second fermentation, is focused on the delicate youthfulness of the wine. Prosecco is meant to be enjoyed shortly after bottling, so fruity lemon zest, orange blossom, green apple, and pear flavors can be fully appreciated and enjoyed.

Freixenet Prosecco ($22) packaging is beautiful, the wine is fresh and bright, and the bubbles last all night. What more could you want from a quality sparkler? #Cheers
