Spring into the new season with Mionetto Prosecco DOC Brut ($13.99). Exceptionally versatile and appealing, this is a refreshing all-around sparkling Italian wine. With its light straw color and vivid yellow color and aromas of golden apples this wine gives way to well-balanced flavors of white peaches and honey. It has a fresh and lively mouth feel that ends with a clean dry finish. Poach a few Diver Scallops in a splash of this lovely brut and sprinkle with a handful of fresh Basil leaves served over thin, Angel hair pasta for the perfect afternoon meal. You can also wait until sunset to enjoy the traditional Aperol spritz made with Aperol, Mionetto Prestige Brut, Triple Sec and a splash of club soda. Garnish with a copious slice of orange and watch the amber sky descend into a starlit night.
