Product information

The Italians don't wait for a celebration to down a glass or two of Prosecco. They pop the cork any day of the week to enjoy the delicate lemon flavours that this Italian beauty is famed for. Great on its own. Even better with a cold chicken salad.


More about this product:


Prosecco has been around for quite a few centuries so it's fair to say the Italians know a good thing when they see it. Mind you, Prosecco hasn't always been to everyone's liking, but not so today. Much improved production techniques have made a delicious difference. Now, a good Prosecco, like this corker from Menestrello, is nice and fruity with a lovely hint of sweetness. it has a delicate lemony scent on top of its soft peachy flavours, so try it with your fave chicken dish or something fishy. Go glam and mix it with some peach juice and you've got yourself your own version of the Bellini cocktail. It's the favoured tipple of the glitterati who mingle at the famous Harry's Bar in Venice.

Glera Prosecco grapes have been tendered on theses hillsides for decades and the growers have created their vineyards bit by bit, thus creating a unique landscape whose beauty is such that the producers have applied for the area to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Vinification Details
The grapes are softly pressed to obtain the must, which is then filtered and refrigerate in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks which retain all the freshness of the fruit. Fermentation takes places between 18°C and 22°C. When this has finished the wine is then stabilised and the sparkling wine-making process follows. Here second fermentation occurs using the Charmat method.

Extra dry.. not fruity. Disappointed :(

We only buy prosecco once a year for the festive period.. but this was not enjoyable, even as bucks fizz. Buyer beware.. the other reviewer stating this is correct! However if you like extra dry, then crack on :)

Strange after taste

I'm a huge fan of Prosecco and thought id give this one a try as it was on offer. The only way to describe this prosecco is like very fizzy water with a strange after taste, certainly will not be buying this one again!

Fresh Taste

I've tried a few of the different Prosecco's from Morrisons, and this is by far the nicest. It's dry without being too dry, with a crisp fresh finish.

this rating is wrong - it's an extra-dry wine

It appears Morrisons wine dept can't read labels as the back label on this bottle clearly states the wine is extra-dry. This is a mistake that I have alerted Morrisons about on at least three other dry and extra-dry wines mislabelled as 3-Sweet. Prosecco is the grape variety grown in the North-East Italian region of Veneto and almost always produces dry or extra-dry wine. It is a great wine and I'd recommend to fans of dry wine but not fans of sweet. I suggest, if you are looking for a sweet wine, you check the image on the site of the back label before buying to check the information provided by the makers.

Best Prosecco!

This is a gorgeous dry sparkling wine - we think it's equally as nice as champagne and is a brilliant buy when on offer. Well done Morrisons as this is regularly on offer !
