Refreshing citrus with hints of orange peel and with 11% alcohol, the NV Valdo Prosecco DOC cost under $16. It’s almost completely dry and scored 17 points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.

Valdo takes pride is noting that it is the Number One selling off trade Prosecco in Italy. It’s really what the locals drink.

We use it as a pre-dinner wine, and then used it throughout a dinner of flank steak and lots of vegetables and an enormous salad.. It worked.

Just remember that the term “Extra Dry” really means a little sweeter than “Brut” examples, and Extra Dry examples will not work with most meals. In Vino Veritas.
