Luckily there are many choices when shopping for Prosecco. Many good choices are available at under $15 a bottle and many hover in the $10 zone. The Chloe is in the higher price zone for wines of this quality.

This is a very pretty bubbly worthy of a place at the brunch table. It's a quite a bit sweeter than many of its counterparts but the sweetness is not at all out of place as the fruit flavors support the sugars with just enough acidity to keep it fresh.

How to Enjoy

Serve well-chilled at happy hour or brunch.
