Canella Prosecco

Canella Prosecco, $14.99-$16.99, 90 points, reminds me that almost every time I grab a Prosecco, I'm satisfied. Can you say that about any other wine?
The question isn't about exclusivity, but of reliable value. Want something non-obtrusive, something refreshing and easy to drink, that pairs with a host of foods or is great all-by-itself? Well, leave the road most traveled and put one of these in the fridge, pop open and enjoy in the 98% humidity and 100 degree weather, and you'll know what I'm talking about.
I'll admit the unacceptable: Champagne doesn't appeal to me (Blasphemy!), but then I've not spent more than $50 for a bottle, but that's my point! Okay, I want to buy a $100 bottle of Champagne, but since the lesser ones are not the bread-crumbs of Hansel and Gretel leading me to the Gingerbread-house of satisfaction, I'll leave Champagne to the experts and hope someone will turn-me-on to the golden fleece of wine.
Canella Prosecco is lightly gold in the midst of its effervescence. The aroma is a pleasant apple-ginger that travels throughout its light quality into its long finish. This wine is off-dry with good acidity.
Want something complex? Not with Prosecco, but if you want what I've already described, then don't hesitate;buy!

  1. Hi Dennis, We totally agree with your assessment of Prosecco. So true that it rarely, if ever, disappoints, no matter what vintner you choose. And so true that it's a perfect choice in this blistering heat that we, too, are experiencing right now. Putting a bottle in the fridge immediately. Thanks for the awesome idea.

  2. Lucy and Kip, Nick is being quite the good "host" and so I'll lift a glass to him for being!
    You guys don't know how nervous I was saying that about Prosseco (Talk about a nerd), but your encouragement went a long way in "making my day".
