07/08/2016 – Riosecco Sparkling Glera

(2016) Brazil may not be the first country you think of for wine production, but a lot is made there, including plenty of sparkling wine. So what better way to celebrate the Rio Olympics in August 2016 that with a couple of bottles of this - I say a couple because throughout August there's a two for £12 deal on the wine in M&S. It's made from the same grape as Prosecco, it's cheeky Riosecco name giving that clue, and is a typically frothy, icing sugar and lemons concoction that slips down a treat in its off-dry, undemanding way. Not fine wine, but perfect for Olympic-themed parties and picnics. Watch the video for full information on the background to this wine and its unusual name.
