Winemaker's Notes

Anthony Giglio: Prosecco is the best of both bubbly worlds: heritage and quality, but without the haughtiness or pretension of some other sparklers. Mionetto is one of the region’s most reliable producers. I always keep a bottle in the fridge as a preparation for life’s little celebrations. It’s perfect for enjoying on its own or for mixing brunch-time mimosas or happy hour spritzes. Its lively, fruit-forward bouquet offers melon, apple and peach with a hint of almond. On the palate, it is dry and light-bodied with notes of grapefruit and lime. Marnie Old: As the global popularity of northern Italy’s flagship sparkler continues to grow, Proseccos are evolving, with producers like Mionetto making a variety of styles that appeal to just about every taste and every occasion. Within their range, this Brut cuvée is quite modern, as crisp and clean as fresh sheets, and noticeably less sweet than more traditional versions. Where many Proseccos fare best as daytime delights, Mionetto’s Brut suggests more serious nightlife celebrations as a sophisticated apéritif or for flattering savory cuisine. Mark Oldman: If you’d like to make yourself as happy as Pharrell Williams, install a gushing geyser of this fizzy refresher in your backyard. A streak of lemony goodness shoots through its light- to medium-bodied frame, with delicate effervescence and subtle hints of peach on its vibrant finish. The joy will continue when you serve it with seafood, such as shrimp, crab or calamari, or with lightly spicy Chinese or Thai creations.

87 points Wine Enthusiast: Here's a refreshing and luminous sparkler with easy aromas of citrus, peach and white mineral. This Prosecco would match perfectly with finger foods and fried calamari thanks to the wine's floral flavors and crisp acidity. (12/15/09)

Grape variety: Prosecco Doc. This variety, well known since Roman times, has been grown for more than two centuries on the hills of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, and has found an ideal location there.Vinification: "in bianco” (without skins), using the Charmat method. This spumante is a perfect example of the Mionetto style, with that full and consistent perlage which characterises all the spumantes it produces.

A straw-colored wine with brilliant reflections. The aroma is fruity, reminiscent of pear and citrus with a slightly floral bouquet. The wine is fresh and crisp with apparent apple and peach flavors.
