Review: 2016 Vino dei Fratelli Prosecco DOC
It’s simple Prosecco, sure, but sometimes that’s what the day calls for. Fratelli’s rendition of the Italian sparkler is at first fresh and dry, but it ultimately takes a turn toward both a gooier consistency and a more fruit-focused core. The ultimate tasting note is akin to applesauce, though secondary notes of lemon curd and custard emerge as the finish approaches. I’d love to see a drier finish, but at $10 a bottle, it’s hard to complain too loudly.
Note: If you’re having trouble finding the vintage on your wine, check the back label and look for the computer-printed overlay… kind of like an expiration date on your milk.
