Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine which became fashionable all around the world in the last decade. Prosecco is perfect as aperitif or as a toast, but it is an amazing fizzy wine to enjoy with food as well. Creamy, floral and fruity bubbles are a genius match for appetizers, snacks, seafood, risotto & pasta and sweet treats as well. Mineral, persistent bubbles are very refreshing and go perfectly also with heavier dishes like Sunday roasts or burgers.
