Sparkling Wine Review of Aldi Organic Prosecco Extra Dry, Veneto, Italy
Aldi’s Organic Prosecco is an “eco-friendly fizz sourced from the Corvezzo family’s 150-hectare estate, 30km north-east of Venice. Grown with no pesticides or herbicides used in the vineyard, the grapes are predominately hand picked and gently pressed to ensure only the highest quality of juice is used. The winery is also committed to using renewable energy wherever possible.” (source aldi.co.uk)
Overall Tasting Notes & Impressions
With a delicate and appealing pale lemon-yellow color, this Prosecco comes with elegant, yet precise aromas of lime and lemon combined to a wealth of floral honeysuckle and lily character to the nose.
It’s zesty and lively to smell at, tempting too from being so floral and citrusy!
The palate confirms this is a very fruity wine, bursting with flavors of fresh pear and acidic apricot and peach. Bubbles are smooth and relatively fine.
While a crisp acidity in a dry-style bubbly provides a refreshing and approachable feel, the wine is balanced by the wealth of rich fruity characters.
Not only do you get the food-friendly and satisfying mineral dryness of a good Prosecco wine, but also the fruit generosity of an enjoyable and pleasing satisfying experience, should you drink this Prosecco on its own or pair it with antipasti, appetizers or a delicate entrée dish.
For a £7.99 asking price at Aldi, this Prosecco is of very good value.
Precise in all aspects, the purity of its flavors as well as its balance and the finesse of its bubbles, it simply ticks all boxes of what we enjoy in a well-made Prosecco sparkling. The bonus is that it’s an organic Prosecco and made with grapes grown sustainably in Italy.
