Today we are going to review a genuine Prosecco wine – that famous fizzy, refreshing wine style that is so much sought after all over the world – Prosecco Brut by La Jara. This is an organic wine made from glera grapes that were sourced from the Treviso DOC in Veneto wine region, produced using the non-traditional tank method (also called méthode charmat) – a style of wine that is growing in popularity with each passing season and there’s a reason why. Prosecco tends to have boisterous fruit and mesmerizing flower aromas and because it ages in large tanks with less pressure, Prosecco has lighter, frothy bubbles that don’t last as long as in a classic Champagne, still, the aromas in Prosecco smell fabulous. In fact Prosecco is the most famous italian spumante wine, and it is meant to be enjoyed young and fresh. That said and without further ado, let’s move on straight to the tasting results.

Verdict: this is a very lean and refreshing Prosecco wine that can be considered a true crowd-pleaser – one that is right there, at the peak of its form and one that does not require any further bottle ageing as it is meant to be enjoyed today rather than tomorrow. It tastes supple and light, with a nuanced fruity-citrusy profile, nuanced tropical notes in the foreground and subtle herbaceous hints in the background. The wine has a very lush and slightly sweet mouthfeel, with well integrated alcohol and it feels a bit low on acidity. This is a quite fair and easy to drink wine, yet one that lacks some structure and complexity on the palate. All in all this is a very appealing, easy to drink sparkling wine that will pairs amazingly well with a wide range of summer cuisine, like for example avocado bruschetta or italian lobster pasta. Salute!
