Zardetto Prosecco (NV) wine review by (PB)

Pale straw color with some nice fine bubbles.
Aromas are scant but what's there hints at light apple notes.

Palate--bubbles are ample making a lively impression but all in all the flavors are fairly non-descript and rather lifeless. With a good chill, this wine is pleasant enough for a warm spring day which is why we raised a glass but if flavor is what you're after, any number of sparklers would fit the bill. At $11, this was just "okay"with some cheese and almonds as an appetizer but there are so many other choices, why not get both fun and flavor?

Ever tried Prosecco by Tinazzi? It's pretty good (as far Prosecco goes); on the dry side. I think Terranova imports it.
