Pianeta Organico Prosecco Extra Dry £7.99
Prosecco is the best selling sparkling wine in the UK but only a tiny amount of this is from organic vineyards. Pianeta Organico (Planet Organic) Prosecco is a fabulous crowd-pleaser with authentic character and it stands out in more ways than one.
Giovanni Corvezza, who calls himself The Happy Farmer, takes his concern for the environment as seriously as his wine-making. Not only are his vines free from pesticides and herbicides and certified organic, his winery is powered by renewable energy sources such as solar panels. And let’s face it, any winemaker who, like Giovanni, eschews a fancy label in favour of a plain one printed on recycled paper has got to mean business. The quality of the wine backs this up.
This Prosecco has really expressive aromas that remind you of ripe yellow pears, green apples and lemon sherbet. It’s fruity, fresh and mouthwatering with lovely creamy bubbles. It’s a jolly good Prosecco for the price and a jolly good price for an organic Prosecco.
This isn’t just for eco-warriors, it’s for any serious fan of northern Italy’s favourite fizz. Enjoy on its own, in cocktails such as Bellinis or with parma ham and other antipasti.
If a glass or two risk making you merry, the wine’s organic credentials should make you merrier still.
