Summer is a great time to experiment with sparkling wine and summer fruits. We recently went for a mini getaway in the Okanagan Valley and came home with tons of peaches.
Ruffino also sent us a bottle of their Prosecco. This sparkling white wine is fruity and fragrant. It has clean notes of citrus, pears and apples along with slight hints of hawthorn, wisteria and elder.
Prosecco wines are made primarily from the Glera grape. It is a native variety with origins in the lovely village of Prosecco, near Trieste. This is an easy to drink bubbly that is a versatile food companion. Since Prosecco is also perfect as an apéritif or mixed into popular cocktails, making a peach bellini only made sense! Right?!
