Friday Wine Tasting... Valentine's Day

Wine of the Week...
Riondo Pink Prosecco Raboso
$13.99 (Country Roads in Marlborough, fabulous selection of wines for Valentine's Day)

This is the perfect Valentine's Day wine, and not just because it is festive and pink... although it will work well with my table decor. Prosecco is the perfect way to start the night with light festive bubbles, gentle fruit notes and crisp acidity it is sure to set the tone for a fun night. Food Pairing: Perfect with light Hors D'oeuvres or a salad course.

What Other people are saying:
Transparent and very pretty pale rosy pink,
frizzante but not fully sparkling; frothy bubbles quickly fall back in the glass. Delicate red berries and fresh herbs on the nose; crisp, prickly and fresh on the palate, subtle fruit shaped by good acidity. There may be a distant hint of fresh-fruit sweetness, but with the tart acidity and a pleasant, very slight bitter note in the finish, it comes across as dry. - via winelovers page
