Despite not holding the more prestigious DOCG designation, this wine makes a subtle statement by mentioning Valdobbiadene, it’s origin, on its label — usually only done for Prosecco of the DOCG category. Contrary to what one might expect, ‘Extra Dry’ in this context always refers to a subtly sweet flavour profile.
Valdo Prosecco DOC Extra Dry surpasses expectations set by its modest 3.6 score on Vivino. Having in a pale straw yellow hue, it entices with a nose that mixes floral notes with the crisp, fresh scent of apples. The taste is reminiscent of sherbet, offering a fizziness that adds a unique character and long finish.
Taste wise, this Prosecco actually sits between the everyday cheap Prosecco and the distinguished elegance of Prosecco DOCG, making it a choice worth considering for those who wish to enjoy a slightly better taste without the premium price tag. Priced at £7.50 from Asda at the time of writing and widely available, it’s excellent value.
