Riondo non-vintage Veneto Prosecco ($12.99)
Clear light gold, pours up with a frothy mousse that falls back fast. Interesting fruit and floral aromas, plums and pears. Fresh and frothy on the palate, white fruit and soft acidity; clean and quenching, with just a touch of peach-pit bitterness in the finish. US Importer: Grapes Solutions Inc., Dover, Del (Oct 20, 2008)

FOOD MATCH: opcorn! Don't knock it if you haven't tried it, but take care ... the combination of crisp bubbly and buttered, salted popcorn is so addictive that you'll want to use a little will power to govern your portion control.



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.
