Wine of the Week:

Zardetto Prosecco Brut


Winemaker’s Notes:

A blend of 95% Prosecco and 5% Chardonnay.  Crystal clear with a hearty white foam and fine perlage. Fresh fragrant aromas and a delicately soft and harmonious taste are the hallmarks of this quintessential aperitif wine.very pale greenish-gold wine that pours up with a frothy fizz when the Champagne-style cork is popped; it quickly settles back to a lasting stream of bubbles in the glass. Apples, a whiff of clover honey and a delicate hint of wildflowers mingle in an exceptionally pleasant aroma. Crisp and dry tart-apple flavors are near bone-dry, with a frothy, prickly mouthfeel and mouth-watering lemon-squirt acidity in a long finish. Bright and refreshing, it’s an appealing summer sipper, but good balance and crisp acidity make it a fine food wine.

Food Pairing:

 A simple pilaf-style chicken-and-rice dinner seasoned with lots of tarragon, ginger and garlic made a spendid match, enlivened by a splash of fresh lemon juice stirred into the dish at serving time.
