The NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Jeio shows crisp mineral-laced green apples and savory spice. It’s soothingly sweet and spicy, yet full of zesty energy, with ripe orchard fruits offset by a tug of brisk acids. This takes a turn toward the savory side, with salty minerals and herbs; yet energy remains high, making for a clean and wonderfully refreshing finale.
All credit to Bisol for this organic wine, which offers a pure, elegant example of delicately sparkling Glera. Classic scents of apple, nectarine, florals - and is there even a hint of orange peel in there? Who cares, it's a bloody good drink.
Creamy, racy and fun, this offers inviting aromas of green apple, wisteria and aromatic herb. The vibrant palate delivers Bartlett pear, citrus and thyme accompanied by an elegant, continuous mousse. It has a crisp, dry close.
A deliciously fruity and dry sparkling wine with melon, light strawberry and citrus aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, tight and fruity. Fresh finish. Serious character to this. Bottled in 2018.
Wine & Spirits
“Bisol represents a gold standard in Prosecco production, from its prestigious cru-level wines to the value-priced Jeio line. The Cuvée Spumante Brut includes some chardonnay, which gives it more heft than most, with notes of golden apple and pear; the Valdobbiadene Brut is tighter, with finer bubbles, mouthwatering acidy and cool salinity—ready for Wellfleet oysters.”
