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.
