Help with a newbie on Prosecco..

mcel215 Dec 15, 2010 03:50 PM

I've had prosecco a few times, like it for the Holidays I think this year.

Any recommendations for me to try. I am not looking to spend lots of cash, just a
good value, with good flavor.

BTW, I'll take this to the site board afterward, but what the heck is up with the
search feature on this board lately. i pulled up prosecco on the search line and
lots of threads popped up, but you can no longer click on them to read them.
(scratching my head here)...

Thanks.

    Two smaller producers I like are Vettori and La Riva dei Frati.

        Thank you, I'll give the Costco in Danvers a call.

        I had a nice glass of Zonin at Antico Forno's in Boston's North End.

        Anyone know anything about this one? My wine shop doesn't carry it and can't get it in
        until after the Holiday for me.

          BLM in Allston carries it. How "north of the city" are you? I can probably find it for you.

              I'll check with some of my vendors and get back to you.

          Nino Franco is good. I also like Riondo and Zardetto.

            The best Proseccos will come from the appellation Conegliano-Valdobbiadene. Look for either or both words on the label.

              Suggest Nino Franco "Rustico," Bisol, & Mionetto Brut.
