As has been reported, I consider myself to be something of a “bubble head,” in that I would have no problem whatsoever with drinking sparkling wine on a daily basis. I love the stuff, I really do, but financial considerations, even at the best of times, are such that I can’t afford to enjoy Champagne nearly as much as I would like. No hey problemo, as there is a lot of good bubbly out there for very reasonable prices. Normally, I might be inclined to go with a good Spanish Cava rather than an Italian Prosecco, as they tend to have a little more heft and a little more minerality than their counterparts from Veneto. However, we tried a little number that we picked up at Costco a few weeks back and I like it so well (especially for so few dollars), that I’ve been bringing it home again and again.

NV Mionetto Valdobbiadene Prosecco Brut, 11% alc., $9.99: This is a step up from the Mionetto II Prosecco with the bottle cap that I tried with the gang from Slows Bar-B-Q this past summer. I liked that one fine, and I like this one even better. Clean and harmonious, yes, it’s Brut, but it’s not completely bone dry, offering pretty peach and apple flavors and aromas with some subtle mineral underneath it all. More than middleweight, with good cut , mousse and enough intensity to hold my interest, it’s a fine choice for everyday drinking. Find this wine
