Lot 18 / The Tasting Room, $17

Aaron:  This gets points as a good mixing prosecco but not as a great wine.  I smelled smoked honey and white eucalyptus but the flavor was light without much going on.  There was a little watery green fruit like honeydew but ultimately this was just bland. 88 points for mimosas; 83 for wine.

Teri: Light nose and very mild taste which, if anything, resembles walnuts and some mineral. Extremely dry! Good for mixing but I wouldn’t consider this to drink by itself. 84 points

Pop Dust Prosecco

Lot 18, $16


Aaron: This is pretty good.  Light, green apple on the nose.  Mild flavor with lots of apricot and pear as well as some saltine crackers.  89 points

Teri: Light nose, but beautiful and sturdy flavors of apple, lemon, walnut and a hint of vanilla. Almost too many bubbles, but that was ok with me. The flavor lingers after you swallow and leaves you wanting more. 91 points

Aaron:  Pear and apple on the nose which is slightly metallic.  A sharp, dry flavor with white strawberry.  A little cedar and green melon round out the taste.  90 points

Teri: With a dry orange nose, this Italian prosecco carries a light flavor of pear, lemon, and peach. It’s dry short flavors are great to mix with other beverages or enjoy by itself. We enjoyed this with a touch of orange juice bringing out more flavors in the prosecco itself. 88 points 

Kirkland Asolo Proseco Superiore NV

Purchased from Costco around $8


Aaron: A grapefruit nose with a light and subtle peach lead to a bite-less, calm sparkling which I think is better for mixing than drinking.  The bubbles were light with mild tartness and there really wasn’t much going on.  85 points

Teri: The smell reminds me of a lemon-almond cookie with similar tastes of almond, lemon, peach, and a hint of mineral flavors. Smooth and non-dry. Not too much flavor but just crisp and refreshing. 88 points  for general price and good quality.

Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero NV

Purchased from Costco, $9.89Riondo Prosecco NV


Aaron:  The full flavor surprised me because of the lemony wheat smell.  I was expecting something very dry but instead this featured juicy pear and mild citrus along with some tart raspberry.  Not bad.  89 points

Teri: This is one of the best prosecco’s I have tried to date. The bouquet isn’t much (just a light nose of pear and lemon peal) but the body is rich and crisp. I was amazed by the long legs but still light viscosity and the delightful peach and pear flavors with just a hint of sweetness. Crisp, clean, and rich on flavor. 90 points
