Mionetto Prosecco Brut
Wine AdvocateMionetto's NV Prosecco Brut is a solid, reliable offering with good varietal character and balance. Still, it would be nice to see this large house make more ambitious wines. I recently saw Mionetto's Prosecco being poured in one of Manhattan's most fashionable hotel bars and couldn't help thinking that Prosecco can be so much more. If the region's top producers are truly serious about protecting the integrity of the Prosecco brand, the first place to start is by putting a higher quality product in the bottle. This is Lot: L10099. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2011.
Wine EnthusiastDespite its dry mouthfeel and finish, this offers a touch of fragrant fruit and honey on its fresh bouquet. It's simple and easy drinking, with a lively and cheerful personality.
Wine SpectatorA well-spiced Prosecco, with ripe green pear and plum fruit layered with crisp acidity and accents of lemon zest and grated ginger. Moderate finish. Drink now. 325,000 cases imported.
