It’s said that one eats with one’s eyes. Well, if that’s true then Borgo Molino Prosecco will be tempting before it even reaches the shopping basket.
This is a bottle that stands out from the predictable crowd. It’s a little squatter than bottles customarily used for sparking wine. It’s somewhat reminiscent of a small 17th century fortified wine bottle. The label is neat and as sparkling as the contents. One’s expectations will be high, and likely met by Borgo Molino Prosecco.
Made by a family-run company in Italy, Borgo Molino Prosecco is made with the classic prosecco method of secondary fermentation. It’s a pale wine with good fizz and medium finish. It has light body with agreeable citrus notes on both the nose and palate with, perhaps, just a hint of something floral. There is a freshness that makes this a most delightful glass as an aperitif or even with a white fish starter.
Borgo Molino Prosecco is a well-crafted sparkling wine, but it also makes a delicious cocktail for a special occasion. With the addition of a little Crème de Cassis one can make a Prosecco Kir Royal with a cherry-blossom pink blush – just right for spring.
