Riondo Prosecco , Vino 2011 and Wine TV with JustJess
Last year at Vino 2010, the largest Italian Wine Event in the U.S., Prosecco seemed to be the buzz word. This year, Vino 2011 will be held again at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC and I’m eager to see if Prosecco will still be causing all the buzz.
One Prosecco that caught my attention recently was Riondo.
The Prosecco received high accolades on Good Morning America and scored 90 points by Robert Parker, so I was eager to see what all the hype was about.
This screw cap bubbly is a great alternative to champagne, and at less than $10 it’s a perfect anytime wine. The melon and floral notes on the nose played wonderfully with the citrus, sparkly after-taste making this a perfect pairing with a simply grilled fish or chicken dish.
I’m looking forward to the exciting panels and tastings at Vino 2011, and will be doing interviews all week during Jan.23-27th at the Waldorf. If you’re in NYC come stop by !
