Food and wine pairing
Green ……- I will do Prosecco with green salad with fruits, avocado fresh salmon, veggies noodles, sushi rolls and fruit salads.
Prosecco is easy drinking sparkling wine good for starters, soft main dishes or fruits.
Mostly we drink it fresh we have rarely vintage Prosecco and even I will give you advice drink Prosecco fresh.
What we have to know when we buy Prosecco try to buy only from cavas or wine shops. I will trust only people with wine knowledge. I cannot trust supermarkets which mostly will store their wines on the shelves long time standing and usually with a lot of sunlight. And we have to be careful about the temperature which is around any bottle of wine – cannot be too high and humidity is the second thing which can destroy any good wine.
What is the good price for Prosecco? We are in Cyprus most of the price are little bit more high than Europe than min 8 euro to maximum 40 euro per bottle.
