Enjoy this refreshing, inexpensive bubbly anytime.
Prosecco is the great everyday bubbly, and La Marca’s edition is always a good choice. Completely unpretentious, prosecco never tries to be champagne, nor does it try to be all that serious (although there are a few upmarket versions). It’s from the Venetian part of Italy that gives us Valpolicella and Amarone, and is made from a white grape called glera. It’s a little softer and less fizzy than traditional sparklers like champagne and cava, and always has lighter alcohol as well as a whisper of peachy sweetness on the palate. La Marca is a well-established co-op in Treviso, where 5,000 growers contribute their carefully tended fruit. Aromas and flavours of apple, stonefruit, and citrus provide a flavourful backdrop for foamy effervescence and a hint of minerals on the clean, crisp finish. You can’t do better than to have a glass with brunch waffles, or as an aperitif while the barbecue heats up. As they love to say in the Veneto, prosecco is a lifestyle.La Marca Prosecco$17.39 (on sale at BC Liquor Stores for $15.39 until July 25)Italy +321182
