Inexpensive Bubbly for the Vulgar New Year: La Marca Prosecco

La Marca Prosecco is a sparkling wine made in the Trevisio area of Northern Italy from the Glera grape. Prosecco is characterized by light and delicate  fruit and floral aromatics, relatively lowalcohol levels, and a friendly mouthfeel. Prosecco is best consumed soon after production while it still retains its youthful fruitiness and stimulating acidity. La Marca Prosecco, produced by a winegrower cooperative founded more than 40 years ago, brings top quality at a friendly price.
