7-27-13 Word On WIne Review 2 Sparklers Great For Any Time Of Year!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary and I review 2 sparklers which we had originally conceived of for Thanksgiving but frankly these are good any time!

1)Colutto Ribolla Gialla $24.  Ribolla Gialla is the grape and the producer is Colutto.  This grape and wine hail from Fruilli which is in the extreme north east of Italy not too far from Slovenia!  If you are looking for something sparkly which has more heft than Prosecco and less than Champagne…This by gosh is it!

Our second wine is the Hillinger Secco Pinot Noire Sparkling Rose.  $15.  Perfectly drinkable and based on Mary’s recent dinner party a complete winner before the meal or with just about anything from soup to nuts!

Check out our show and go buy something with a foil top!
