NV Bosco dei Cirmioli Brut Spumante, Salgareda (Veneto), Italy $7.99

Silverdale, WA    11% alc.    (Purchased on 12/27/14)

IMG_1971Color & Clarity: Brilliant pale golden with an abundance of tiny bubbles.
Aromas: Slightly closed nose is more fruity than yeasty, but not overly fruity; shows some peach and grapefruit aromas.
Flavors: Little yeast and more fruit with flavors of grapefruit, peach and slightly bitter almond in a bone dry package.
Texture:  It shows a mildly foamy mousse; moderate acidity, so it’s not overy tart and lemony.  Not a lot of extract in terms of texture; more light and fanciful…a quaffer.
Finish: Clean, dry finish.  A decent food bubbly.

I could find nothing of any consequence about this wine on the internet.  I found a fair amount of info about their extra dry Prosecco, but not the brut spumante (which means only sparkling wine in Italian; not to be confused with Asti Spumante made from Muscat grapes).  Just guessing, I’d say this wine might well be made from Pinot Grigio, as it does have similar qualities.
