HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)12/28/13/–Priced at only $13.99 the new Prosecco from Voga Italia comes from the town of Coneglio, and is yet another player in the rapidly expanding portfolio of Prosecco’s to choose from. This particular version is produced with an extended Charnat method in order to improve its perlage. This is the first Prosecco from Voga Italia which isknown primarily for the wines of Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Moscato and Dolce Rosso.
At that price this Prosecco is not only competitively priced but also an attractive looking bottle, which is exactly what you would expect from the sharp marketing folks over at Voga. The drink itself is perfectly acceptable, and fits right in with the other wines in their portfolio. Although Prosecco cannot be compared to champagne, it is certainly a sparkling wine that has been coming into its own a lot in the last couple of years.
Dolce Rosso is a sweet red relatively new to their collection that retails for $10.99, great value for such an enjoyable wine. The wine is a super blend of Italian Syrah and Merlot with their flavors of plum and cherry to spice up the palate with a delightful lingering taste. This is a wine that goes just as well in the daytime as at night, and the packaging is cool as well with the cylindrical bottle and resealable cap.
The Moscato is also a fairly recent addition to the collection and is also priced at $10.99. This wine hails from the Provincia di Pavia province in the Lombardy region and has a sweet and bubbly taste. The essence of good Moscato is to capture the fruity flavor of the grape, and that is done by quickly crushing and pressing the grape. Fermentation captures the carbon dioxide giving the wine its frizzante character, although the process is stopped prematurely to give the Moscato the sugar and flavor intensity it needs.
Food pairings with this Moscato will be light hors d’oeuvres or desserts. Packaging is important to the brand which apparently can be found in over seventy countries and in a lot of the hip and trendiest bars in these countries.
