8/2007 GRUET BLANC DE NOIRS BRUT AND MASCHIO DEI CAVALIERI PROSECCO DI VALDOBBIADENE
Weeeeeee- two bottles of bubbly to taste in the balmy late summer. GRUET BLANC is a pleasant sparkling wine made in — get this — New Mexico! It’s $14 a bottle and enjoyable. It lacks nuance, but you can bring it to a party and you won’t embarrass yourself. (Rating ***1/4) For more info, surf to the website of GRUET WINERY.
Meanwhile, this Italian Prosecco is a real treat. It was fruity, floral, and it tickled the tongue. Yum- it’s well worth the $19 retail. (Rating ****) For further info, contact the folks at “Banfi Vintners.
