Weekend Wine: Avissi Prosecco

Avissi Prosecco Sparkling Wine Italy, $12-$15: The current “it” bubbly is the affordable, approachable, lighter-style and ever-so-peppy Prosecco, named for the grape that it is made from. This example, imported from the Veneto region of Italy by Trinchero Family Estates in Napa Valley, has Prosecco’s typical 11.5 percent alcohol but it tastes like a fuller-bodied wine.  The acidity and smack of fruit make it sing. Think sweet apple, pineapple, grapefruit and minerality. Find it at Holiday Market, Royal Oak; Market Square, Birmingham; Woods Fine Wine, Grosse Pointe Woods; Baxter’s Liquor & Wine, Ann Arbor. The wholesaler is Great Lakes Wine & Spirits.
