Drink of the Week: Sorelle Bronca Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

Bubbly wines are reliably festive and effervescent, which makes them the perfect crowd-pleasing choice for the holidays. But when it comes to picking the bottle that’s right for you, the choices can be overwhelming. For holiday gatherings, Prosecco can be a great fit; it’s delicious and inexpensive, with a tempered acidity that gracefully transitions from passed hors d’oeuvres through to dessert. One bottle we recommend toasting with family and friends this year is the organically grown and estate-bottled Sorelle Bronca Prosecco. The estate, founded by sisters Antonella and Ersiliana Bronca in the mid-1980s, sits in the heart of the newly named DOCG Conegliano-Valdonniadene and produces several varieties of Prosecco as well as a few still wines. This particular Prosecco is bright and crisp with inviting fruity and floral aromatics, the teeniest bubbles and a lingering tart apple finish that draws you in for another sip.
