Mionetto Prosecco

Mionetto prosecco frequently pops up on  lists of value bubblies. I’ve had it a few times over the years and enjoyed it but it hasn’t been in our regular rotation here at home, which was frustrating since  I know its very widely distributed.  It turns out it’s just really a matter of going to the right liquor store, and I found it this past week at Old Farm Liquors.  It was on sale for $9.99.  To be precise, since they make several varieties, I am talking about Mionetto Prosecco Brut D.o.c.  I found it to be moderately bubbly, with lots of golden delicious apple flavors with a hint of pear.  It winds up with a nice, crisp dry finish.  It also had a little bit of champagne-like undertones that elevated it a notch above the usual prosecco.  Had it with ham and cheese (Gruyère) crepes and it was excellent.
