My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine, beer and spirits tips with each episode. This week I discuss: Merlot.
Enza ‘Extra Dry’ Prosecco, DOC Italy $15
When I think of Prosecco, I imagine a taste similar to Enza. Light, refreshing and juicy. This easy-drinking bubbly captures the friendliness of Prosecco at a price that pleases. Made from Glera grapes – the true name for the Prosecco grape variety – in north east Italy’s Prosecco DOC region, it's a fun wine to sip on a summer day.
