Day 182 Drink: Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero
The Veneto region of Italy is ground zero for prosecco. These wines are typically not expensive and they are not complicated. Perfect for a light summer dinner or as a cocktail pour, prosecco is not demanding on your palate.
Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero is a non-vintage sparkling wine that has a light floral nose and is fairly lightly carbonated. The 10.5 percent alcohol by volume wine has hints of citrus and pears. The wine is smooth and has a decent level of acidity.
