Trevisiol NV Prosecco Extra Dry - Review

Veneto, Italy

Our Selection for Wine of the Week December 5, 2011

A Trevisiol NV Prosecco Extra Dry, our wine of the week

NV Prosecco Extra Dry

Veneto, Italy

A family-founded operation, Trevisiol is one of Italy's most significant Spumanti producers. Today, the third generation of the Trevisiol family oversees the company's winemaking operations. The winery currently produces multiple Prosecco bottlings, including rosé and Extra Dry. Made in the time-honored tradition of Veneto, Trevisiol's current release of the Extra Dry is softer, slightly sweeter and more approachable than Champagne. On the nose, it offers sweet lemon custard aromas with just a hint of spice. Lemon freshness and a hint of sweetness dominate on the palate. The spice note from the nose returns toward the back of the palate. Soft, lightly effervescent and subtly sweet, it would work well as a brunch wine and as an aperitif. If we had one complaint it would be that the wine lacks finish. Pair it with simple, light foods like poached eggs, crepes or white fish with a squeeze of lemon for brunch. As a pre-dinner drink, try it with juicy olives, lightly salted nuts or a platter of mild cheeses with honeycomb and apricots.
