In a couple days celebrators around the world will pop open a bottle of bubbly to ring in the New Year. A number of them will drop too much coin for high-priced sparklers that, although they can be great, many wine drinkers won’t even be able to tell the difference between them and a much cheaper bottle of bubbly. For the record, I’ve tasted some of those finer sparklers and I do think there is a difference in many of them… but I struggle to find that difference significant enough to justify the massive price difference.
While I love good sparkling wine, I also love a good bargain. And with Voveti Prosecco, I get the best of both worlds.
Prosecco is a good bubbly option for bargain hunters. It’s made using the Charmat process, which involves secondary fermentation in stainless steel tanks and bottling under pressure versus the secondary fermentation in bottle (as done in the traditional Champagne method). The Charmat process is less expensive, resulting in more budget-friendly bottle prices. Wines made with the Charmat process are considered less capable of aging and are intended to be consumed young — but who cares, since consuming is exactly why you’d by a Prosecco.
Voveti is a great option for a cheap Prosecco too. It’s delicious and priced well-under $20. Currently they only produce one wine under this brand so there’s no confusion about what you’re buying.
Soft floral, peach and melon aromatics give this wine a pleasant nose. The mouthfeel offers a nice contrast of silky bubbles and tart acidity. The palate brings well balanced tangy peach, apple and lemon flavors. A tart green apple flavor lingers on the finish. This is an easy-drinking prosecco.
