Love is the word on everyone’s lips at the moment – and if you would like to celebrate with your special person on Valentine’s Day – then what better way than with a glass or three of the fresh, fruity, aromatic Italian fizz, Valdo Floral Rosé Prosecco.
Prosecco is about family, life, love and celebrations – it’s a drink for “Life Lovers” and to be labelled Prosecco the grapes must come from the region of Prosecco in northwest Italy. The Italian Charmat method used to produce Prosecco involves a second fermentation in steel tanks while Champagne and Cap Classique involve a second fermentation in the bottle.
This is a great drink for casual sipping at any hour of the day, is perfect for parties and delicious mixed into cocktails like the world-famous Bellini served at Harry’s Bar in Venice. This does not diminish Prosecco as a wine, it just adds to its versatility. As a food wine, it goes well with a wide range of dishes from fried calamari to a creamy pasta dish and can also be paired with desserts like fresh fruits or a lemon tart.
I love beautiful bottles and designs and this floral stunner is created by Fabrizio Sclavi, the eminent Italian fashion editor with a special passion for illustration, who has collaborated with icons like Ferrari, Giorgio Armani, Andy Warhol and photographer, Oliviero Toscani among others.
This is a standout bottle of Prosecco that’s fresh and lingering, as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, a softly sparkling, strawberries and cream delight.
Valdo Prosecco Rosé Brut Floral Edition retails for around R280 per bottle
One of the more diet-friendly alcoholic drinks, a glass of Prosecco is only 80 calories, while a glass of wine contains about 220 calories.
