For fans of sparkling wines, it is common knowledge that Prosecco is the fastest growing sparkler (by dollar sales) in the US. Light, easy to drink, with a moderately low alcohol content, Prosecco goes well with meals, snack and by itself.
Barefoot Cellars is on the market with the Barefoot Bubbly Prosecco. With a relatively low price (SRP of $10.00) the wine has found a niche for those who want a bubbly, but do not want to pay Champagne prices.
The Barefoot Prosecco is easy to enjoy (and priced to enjoy) as an everyday sparkling wine. The wine has a nose of apple and moves onto the palate with more crisp apples and a bit of pear. On the finish, this Prosecco delights you with a lemony ending making the sweetness of the beginnings nicely offset by the slightly tart end.
For the foodies, the Prosecco will be a pleasant accompaniment with spicy meals or a simple cheese, meat and antipasto plate.
As an Italian product, the grapes selected are from the Glera variety, and the residual sugar is 2.20g/100ml, fairly typical of a Prosecco.
Barefoot has made great strides into the sparkling market. The Prosecco is the 10th offering from Barefoot, and rounds out the Barefoot sparkling platform.
Barefoot has a large variety of award-winning wines, including the Bubbly Fusion series and the new Barefoot Refresh.
This Prosecco is designed for the sparkling wine lover who does not want to spend a day’s salary on a sparkling wine purchase.
As always, thanks to Gallo for the opportunity to taste and review the Barefoot Prosecco!
Enjoy the wine and have a winederful day!
