Trevisol Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry
About $14. Imported by Small Vineyards, Seattle, WA.
Walk into a café or bar in Italy’s Veneto, and chances are, a good portion of the clientele will be sipping flutes of Prosecco. This local sparkling wine makes a great pick-me-up at the end of the workday, or a terrific way to spark up the appetite. Trevisol makes a good example: with gentle bubbles and slight sweetness to its creamy green apple flavors, it’s palate-whetting, especially with slightly salty foods, like chunks of parmesan cheese, potato chips, or even corn nuts, a surprising addictive combination learned from a Veneto bar.
