This months Bubbles
Nino Franco Rustico DOCG Limited Edition In our opinion Nino Franco make some of the best Prosecco, in-fact sparkling wine, in the world. The legendary estate of Nino Franco has been producing Prosecco wines for more than three generations and now Primo Franco, grandson of the original founder, Nino, professionally and lovingly moved this estate into the twenty first century, setting the example to other producers.
This fine Prosecco has aromas of white spring flower, Bartlett pear and citrus waft out of the glass. The racy, refreshing palate is full of energy, offering crisp yellow-apple, lemon drop and orange zest flavours balanced by vibrant acidity.
This sophisticated wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with appetizers or even a light risotto or pasta dish.
Ca' di Rajo Millesimato 2019 DOCG. In terms of winery history, there couldn't be a more opposing bottle to put next to the Nino Franco. The Ca' di Rajo winery is one of the newest wineries in the Valdobbiadene region having formed in 2005, however the three brothers who run the winery established it within a remote medieval village which brings a unique character to their modern winery. As a Millesimato wine, this is a sign of a particularly strong year at the Vineyard and over 85% of the grapes were immediately turned in to wine.
This intensely fizzy wine has an intense and elegant aroma of Acacia flowers with particular notes of apple, lemon and grapefruit. Every sip is soft with notes of fruit, balanced and savoury which is pleasant and harmonious on the palate.
If you like fine sparkling wine, then these should bring a smile to your face, and this is just a taster of some of the incredible wines we have planned in the coming months as we bring you the finest wines from our favourite wineries across the Veneto region.
What else is in the box?
Pappardelle Pasta - In this months box we will teach you to make the perfect bolognese. One of the secrets to perfecting this dish is to stop serving it with Spaghetti. Italians will always serve this dish with a flat pasta and ti really helps ensure as much sauce as possible is soaked up to each mouthful! The other secret will remain just that until you receive the box!
Courgette Mezze - Each month we find some exciting different ingredients and this is one of those. We love the freshness of this Mezze which perfectly combines with the tartlets you can see here, or even some toasted Ciabatta or bruschetta. We will show you how to use this to create some really exciting appetisers which will be the show of any dinner party!
More snacks & treats.... On top of all of the above, we will also throw in sweet and savoury treats every month such as crisps, biscotti and more to ensure that every time you receive a Bubble Box, you get 2 incredible bottles of Prosecco, but more importantly an amazing night in with authentic quality ingredients.
Enjoy, and speak soon!
