Bolla Prosecco

In my last review, I revisited a wine brand that used to be a regular for me (back when I was in my twenties), Bolla.  It’s a brand that offers plenty of decent wines at bargain prices, but for whatever reason it’s also a brand that I haven’t given a lot of love in the past few years.  But I’ve rediscovered it and so today I’m trying another of their wines, this time a Prosecco.

When it comes to bubbly, Prosecco is a great option for the budget-conscious.  Although it’s made with a different process than “traditional method” sparklers, which can result in Prosecco being a little less bubbly than you might prefer.  I didn’t have that problem at all with this one from Bolla, it had plenty of bubbles.

This one is also an “Extra Dry” which has a touch more residual sugar than a Brut would, but it’s still a dry wine and I suspect most average wine consumers couldn’t taste the difference between an Extra Dry and a Brut.  They are both dry wines.

Well-balanced melon, pear, lemon and wet stone aromas give this wine a very pleasant nose.  Simply put, smelling this wine makes you want to taste it.  And the taste of it doesn’t disappoint, offering crisp lemon-drizzled green apple flavors, along with some pear flavors.  It’s light, vibrant and has a creamy-bubbly feel in the mouth.  Tart apple flavors linger on the finish.  This prosecco is a tasty bargain-priced sparkler.
