Was sent several bottles, minis and 750ml, of Mionetto Prosecco for review. As is my habit when I receive quite a few bottles at once I contact the Wine-y Women Unwind Meet-up group for sampling with me. The wines came with information on pricing and tasting notes. Will share the collective tasting notes from the group as well below.
From the Winery
Founded in 1887 by Francesco Mionetto in the small village of Valdobbiadene, Mionetto has an established reputation for quality, tradition and innovation. In the heart of the Prosecco region, Mionetto produces exceptional wines with consistent national and international acclaim.
Mionetto Extra Dry Organic
The Glera grapes for this wine are from a certified organic winery in the town of Vazzola in the hills of Treviso. The winery practices organic farming techniques and grows the grapes without synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. An explosion of green apple, pineapple and orange on the palate with a refreshing crispness from the delicate bubbles.
Group Notes: The color of pale hay. Aromas of apple, peach, toast, cheddar, mown grass and Starburst lime candy. In the mouth we got a mild acidity with lots of apple juice, peach, pear and some minerality. Most of the ladies that drink regularly chose this as their favorite.
Mionetto Prestige Brut ($14 750ml / $4 Mini 187ml)
Made from 100% Glera grapes from the province of Treviso, an area renowned for high quality Prosecco, this sparkling wine offers a luminous straw yellow hue and stylish mousse. The palate is marked by aromatic notes of honey and white peach. For the ever-lasting couple, you can’t beat this bottle of classic brut.
Group Notes: Light lemonade in color, with notes of peach syrup, pink grapefruit, bubble gum and wet stones. Flavors included lemon-lime hard candy, lemonade again and a little hint of cherry.
Mionetto Prestige Rosé Extra Dry ($14 750ml / $4 Mini 187ml)
This deeply luscious sparkling rosè is the result of soft pressing of red grapes. The wine offers a peach blossom luminosity, accompanied by a fine, lively perlage. This wine is known for its intense fragrances, like holding an edible bouquet of violets, raspberries, strawberries, and wildflowers.
Group Notes: Peachy salmon color, the group got Maraschino cherry, strawberry, Mandarin orange and lime on the nose followed by similar tastes on the mouth with the addition of dried cranberry and pomegranate. This was the crowd favorite.
