“Jeio” Prosecco Superiore Brut NV D.O.C.G.
(Valdobbiadene, Veneto, Italy) $16
Who doesn’t need a really good sparkler that’s a steal at this time of year? The operative words are “really good,” because Prosecco can be a little too bitter or a little too fruity or just plain neutral. It’s a hard wine to get right. But Bisol—founded in 1542, making it one of the oldest prosecco producers—has a terrific track record. Their “Jeio” (pronounced JAY-O) is clean and vibrant with wisps of pear and lemon. Not a touch of bitterness. It’s made mostly from glera, the traditional Prosecco grape, plus small amounts of chardonnay, pinot blanc, and pinot grigio. A simple, quaffable beauty. (11.5% abv)
