I am one of those who love Prosecco. I am also one of those who likes sweet wines – preferably of the Muscat variety. Globally, Prosecco is the sparkling wine story of the decade and has taken the world by storm. In South Africa, the inclination is on the rise too as wine lovers discover the pleasures of this enduring Italian sparkler. No surprise that those with an eye for a trend are toasting their celebrations with a Prosecco sparkling wine! And indeed, drinking it as a normal accompaniment of wine with a meal.
Now, Bottega, a well-known Prosecco producer presents the most perfect little gift pack of two of their wines in 200ml format.
Bottega Prosecco Gold 200ml, regarded as the Ferrari of Proseccos, is distributed in a striking gold-plated bottle. The wine is notable for its persistent foam and fine bubble. Expect aromas of fruit and flowers, scents of Golden Delicious apples, Williams pears, and lily of the valley flowers.
The fruity, slightly sweet Bottega Il Vino Dell’Amore Petalo Moscato, also in a 200ml pack, is popular as an Italian dessert sparkling wine. It is straw yellow in colour with a delicate hint of roses and Turkish Delight.
Celebrate summer with a refreshing Bottega ‘Spritz’ cocktail. This classic Italian aperitif, a traditional icebreaker and symbol of a lively atmosphere, simply must be made with Prosecco. In a stylish glass, combine three parts Bottega Prosecco, two parts Aperol with one splash of Soda Water. Add generous amounts of ice and a slice of orange. Stir and serve!
The recommended retail price of this gift pack is R160.00 and is available from Makro and Norman Goodfellows.
