This Weekend's Pick

Freixenet Prosecco

Freixenet Prosecco

They say that you should never judge a book by its cover and this applies to wine as much as anything else, maybe more so. With this skepticism in mind, it’s amazing to find a wine that tastes as good as it looks, especially when it looks as good as Freixenet Prosecco, this week’s wine. The winery calls it the ‘diamond bottle’, but it has been given the nickname ‘the Bling Bottle’ for good reason. It turns any table into the VIP table and the juice inside is just what prosecco should be; light, fruity, and fun. Bling bling!


Tasting Notes: Made of 100% Glera (the grape used to make prosecco), Freixenet Prosecco dances across your palate with lively bubbles and notes of fresh lemon, grapefruit, apple and light floral touches with a fresh finish.

Enjoy With: Prosciutto and other fatty cured meats, as well as dishes with cream sauces, creamy cheeses, seafood, and spicy Asian dishes. It’s a versatile food wine.

Style: A light, fruity sparkling wine with just a touch of sweetness.

Terroir/Region: Veneto is the northern Italian home of prosecco, with the hilly region between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene as the beating heart of the region. Here the rolling hills create great sun exposure for the Glera grapes as they ripen and cool breezes help promote the acidity that is so important to making a fresh, balanced prosecco.

Producer: When the number one sparkling wine producer in the world decides to make a prosecco, it doesn’t fool around. Freixenet sourced some of the finest grapes in the Veneto region to make a high-quality prosecco which gives a nod to the traditional method and style while showcasing the Freixenet winemaking team’s skill in making sparkling wine.

Availability: Freixenet Prosecco is already on LCBO Vintages’ shelves and is selling fast, so you may want to stock up for new year’s celebrations. Freixenet has also made an Italian Sparkling Rose in the Bling Bottle just in case you prefer pink!
