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.
