Wine Review: Masottina Prosecco Treviso Brut

Do you know how popular Prosecco is right now? It's insanely popular. You can even get kegged Prosecco. PROSECCO IN A KEG. They're even having problems keeping up with demand. I swear I saw an article recently saying that the region was putting a halt on any new vineyards being planted for awhile so they can try and maintain some sort of quality instead of getting completely out of control, but I can't find that article now.

Prosecco apparently is also a very difficult word for the unsavvy consumer. It's been called everything from Proseccio to Proshacco to Prozacci, which are all understandable. I once had a guy come in asking for prosciutto. I had to break the news to him that we don't sell deli meats (OMG I wish we did) and he had to explain to me that it was a sparkling wine. Another gentleman came in asking for Progresso, which is a brand of canned soups, but by then I had adapted and realized that he was talking about Prosecco. I'm not making fun of these nice people, but it certainly is funny what they come up with when it comes to Prosecco in particular.

Today I'm reviewing a Brut Prosecco from the Prosecco di Treviso DOC made by Masottina. It's made of 100% Glera from clay soil, and it has an 11% ABV. I'm also eating a chocolate chip cookie with it. Don't give me no "it'll mess up your palate" crap! I was on the Keto diet for like six months and on loose-Keto for the last three. I can have a friggin chocolate chip cookie with some Prosecco if I want. LET'S DRINK SOME BUBBLY!

And man, this is some awesome Prosecco for $14. It's got a rather floral nose with white flowers, fruit aromas of  lemon and apples, and a little bit of honey. There's flavors of pears, apple, lemon, and herbs. On the midpalate it's light and crisp and fluttery, but then it goes ahead and finishes creamy as the carbonation froths up in your mouth.

This is probably the best deal for a Prosecco in this price range that I've had in a long time. Elegant yet still fun, bright and happy, and just good quality for the price.

Price: $14
Rating: 4.5/5 = Recommended / Highly Recommended (what does that mean?)
