I was brought this bottle of Ruggeri Prosecco as a present from my god mother who is really knowledgeable about white, Prosecco and champagne. I had this bottle for a few months before drinking it as I was saving it for a special occasion and I ended up sharing it with friends on the morning of my wedding. What more special occasion could I wait for and I was definately not disappointed by this bottle.
Prosecco is an Italian drink that in the last few years has gained popularity and for good reason I think. Processo in general is lighter than champagne, less dry and much much cheaper.
I really enjoyed this bottle of Ruggeri Prosecco Santo Stefano. It tasted really light and fresh and everyone that had a glass comented on how lovely it was. Of course on the morning of your wedding you are probably supposed to water your alcohol down with orange juice but I am allergic to citrus fruits so it was full strength for me! I'm glad that I didn't add any organge juice to my drink though despite my allergy because this drink is far too nice to 'water down'.
If you have never tried as Prosecco I definately recommend that's you do. My now husband does not really like champagne because he finds it too dry. I have introduced my husband to Prosecco a and he loves it. By far from all of the Prosecco's that I have tried I enjoyed this Ruggeri Prosecco the best. I have not seen it for sale in any supermarkets though which is a shame as I would definately buy this if I saw it on the shelves.
This brilliant wine has an inviting pale greenish colour and fine strands of persistent perlage. Its delicate fruity bouquet is subtle yet persistent, with aromas of mature apples and lemon blossoms. Fresh and lightly sweet, Santo Stefano is well-structured and rounded. It is harmoniously balanced and has a long and gently fruity finish. It is the classic 'ombretta trevigiana' (which could be roughly translated as the 'between-meal drink of Treviso') often drunk with pastries and cakes.
