Now time to review Aldi’s Prosecco… three in one!
Organic Prosecco – £7.99
Aldi say its “…Eco-friendly fizz sourced from the Corvezzo family’s 150-hectare estate, 30km north-east of Venice. Grown with no pesticides or herbicides used in the vineyard, the grapes are predominately hand picked and gently pressed to ensure only the highest quality of juice is used. The winery is also committed to using renewable energy wherever possible.” Wasn’t my favourite in truth… read on to find my Aldi prosecco of choice…
Valdobbiadene Prosecco Spumante – £7.99
Light and refreshing with pleasing bubbles, attractive autumn fruits and delicate floral touches. Good acidity and a light creamy flavour. This is a stylish and gloriously attractive Italian sparkler.
Decided to get this prosecco tested during a party at our house earlier this year. As for scores on this one, this came out on top out of the three! I gave it a 6 out of 10, it had plenty of bubbles, and for me, it had a nice taste to it. The lowest score out of the five testers was 6 out of 10, the highest score was 7 1/2 – 33 out of 50 in total. But, for less than £8, it’s great for any celebration – and certainly good value. Problem is, we soon had an empty bottle!
Belletti Prosecco Spumante – £5.79
Aldi say “…it’s the ideal partner for refined appetizers and delicate fish, white meats and fresh cheese dishes. Citrus fruit and flowery features characterise this wine’s scent.”
Again, my favourite was the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Spumante – but, for less than £6, this would be attractive for the price. For a couple of pounds more, I would upgrade and buy the Valdobbiadene, but let me know if you think differently!
Once again, thanks to Aldi for the samples – my comments are my own… if you like the reviews, please let me know. Bottles available in Aldi stores – stocks permitting. Chris
