Tonight we’re checking out an inexpensive, yet tasty, prosecco from Villa Sandi. When I hear a name like Villa Sandi, I often assume that it’s just some name given to the wine that the producers thought would sound elegant. But in this case, there is a real villa where the company is headquartered, and it dates back to 1622. By looking at pictures of it, it’s quite impressive and looks like a fabulous place to visit. An image of it also made its way onto the labels of their wines.
Like many wine producers, Villa Sandi produces a wide selection of different wines. In the case of Villa Sandi, they produce both still and sparkling wines – including a number of different proseccos. The Il Fresco is their entry-level prosecco.
This is a beautifully vibrant prosecco on the nose, with well balanced aromas of yeast, apple and mineral. The palate is equally well-ballanced with apple, citrus, melon and mineral. The acidity is perfect. It finishes very clean – no lingering sweet flavors, but just a bit of citrus and mineral. This is a good prosecco, and for the price it’s outstanding!
