Our latest Aldi find, the Belletti Prosecco DOC Extra Dry.
Prosecco made from the Glera grape in Veneto, Italy. This wine is labeled "Extra Dry" which is actually not as dry as it sounds with an allowed range of 12-17 g/L of residual sugar. (See this post for more info on how Prosecco is made.)
The Belletti Prosecco is available exclusively through Aldi (USA and UK) and sells for just $6.99-$7.99 (US) depending on your market. It is imported by Prestige Wine & Spirits Group.
Prosecco is the classic Italian sparkling wine. Soft and fruity peach and pear, with breezy apple peel and lemon zest.
The non-vintage Belletti Prosecco DOC Extra Dry begins with a pleasing aroma of pear, lemon, a little honeysuckle and a bit of yeast. Taking a sip reveals a fresh, tasty wine that is just a touch sweet. Great bubbles and lots of acidity help to balance things out quite nicely. With similar flavors to the nose plus apple, peach and a touch of banana and other tropical fruit this is really solid and tasty Prosecco. It finishes dry and long with lingering sweet fruit.
