Advantages: Crisp, light and fruity sparkling prosecco
Disadvantages: Possibly too nice - I couldn't stop drinking it!
For a recent house party at mine a guest very kindly brought us round a bottle of this Martini Prosecco. We didn't open that night, instead hid it away and enjoyed it with a nice meal later on in the week. I was very impressed with the drink, expecting it to be a bit nasty tasting, but it was lovely (I do not like martini vermouth drinks as a whole).
Martini is an Italian brand of alcohol that produces a varied range of drinks, including sparkling wines and vermouth beverages. The brand has been going for over 140 years and is a popular brand of drinks, producing the number 1 sparkling wine and vermouth drinks in the world.
The Martini Prosecco drink comes in your classic champagne style bottle. The base of the bottle is wide and round that extends slightly further up the bottle in the middle and then decreases into a long and thin neck piece. The top of the bottle is where the pressurised cork is held in place that keeps your drink bubbly and fresh. This is held in by a wire cage that you much unscrew before you can pull the cork out and is covered by a strong gold foil wrapper.
Both the label and the wrapping over the neck of the bottle is gold coloured, with the Martini & Rossi branding across the front. The label describes the type of drink - Prosecco - and has all of the alcohol info. This is a 75 cl bottle and has an ABV of 11.5%.
Once the cork has been popped you get a lovely fresh, crisp and bubbly aroma coming from the bottle. The colour is a very light yellow or beige to look at with immense bubbles flowing through it. The taste of this drink is fab, I couldn't get enough of it when I tried it and it tastes a lot more expensive than it is.
To taste the prosecco is light and airy that flows easily down your throat. The wine used in this is quite a dry one made from the Prosecco grape, but it tastes smooth and rich overall. This grape is grown exclusively in Italy's Veneto region and has a nice subtle fruity twang to it, with some apple and peach present in its ingredients list and distinguishable in its flavour.
This prosecco drink is slightly less fizzy than your champagnes, which is probably why it was going down so easily with me! It is refreshing and light and so is perfect with your meal. I would say it is quite a sweet drink and not very acidic unlike some of these drinks can be.
Contains Sulphur Dioxide/Sulphites.
I really liked this prosecco wine, it was beautiful to drink and very fruity and refreshing. The price is pleasing too, it is on special offer in Asda at the moment for the bargain price of £5 and normally retails around the £10 mark. So I will definitely be stocking up for Christmas :)
Summary: Lovely crisp and fruity Prosecco - ideal for parties and a bit of luxury at a great price
