Bisol "Crede" Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Brut ($15.99)
This clear, straw-colored Italian sparkler pours with a quick mound of foam; a fountain of bubbles persists in the glass. Citric, lemony and fresh, the carbonation is a bit nose-tingling at first. Crisp and tart, prickly and mouth-filling, it's a relatively simple wine but clean and balanced, easy to quaff and good with food. US Importer: VIAS Imports Ltd., NYC. (Dec 17, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: Worked well to wash down a Marcella Hazan classic, fricasseed chicken with egg and lemon.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
