We were sent two bottles of Corte Molino Prosecco to try in exchange for a review. All images and opinions are our own.
What a year it’s been. For me it’s been a year of worry about everyone I care about and in turn, all the people they care about too. What with working from home, home schooling and lockdowns x3, there’s been very little to celebrate; and as a consequence I’ve popped very few corks.
But times, they are a-changing. Spring is coming, swathes of people are getting vaccinated and there’s a distinct whiff of hope in the air. Let’s hope it lasts.
Every other week or so, I virtually meet my friends for Zoom drinks. This is something I resisted for a while, I didn’t think I’d enjoy it; but Zoom drinks are now my favourite kind of Zoom. We’ve done gin tastings and wine tastings, bingo drinks and all kinds of stuff; but over the weekend I popped a cork on a bottle of Corte Molino Prosecco from the Co-op and I had the most fun evening.
Corte Molino Prosecco is currently available from the Co-op in two different varieties. There’s the regular Corte Molino Prosecco which costs £8.50 a bottle (currently on offer at £7 a bottle until 6th April 2021), and a lovely Corte Molino Pink Prosecco which also costs £8.50.
The pink fizz is newly launched and well worth seeking out. It’s made from a blend of Glera and Pinot Nero grapes, and has a jolly pink colour. It is a very easy drinking, light fizz with flavours of raspberry and strawberry and some delicate floral notes for good measure. It was just the thing for a Zoom drinks night; and it would make a fine and rather affordable gift or a treat for a friend or for yourself. Treat yourself.
The white prosecco, which is currently on offer is also very, very drinkable. I’m going to hold my hands up and say even I couldn’t drink two bottles of fizz in one night, by myself; so I saved this to perk up Sunday lunch with. The white Corte Molino Prosecco is really crisp and dry, with lemon, peach and elderflower flavours. It’s a terrific bottle of fizz and one I’d happily buy week after week for Zoom drinks and other occasions.
I sometimes find prosecco a bit hit and miss, sometimes they can be too dry or too acidic, but these are really good quality and great value. I think £8.50 is a really good price for prosecco of this calibre.
