Prosecco is still a hot sparkling wine for people to enjoy. It is unpretentious and can be sipped at any time. Today I had a chance to review the Bisol Jeio Brut DOCG Valdobbiadene Prosecco. Brut, the driest version of prosecco, is allowed up to 12 g/l of residual sugar which could leave the wine with an off-dry flavour. This wine I think is less than 12g/l as it was only slightly off-dry. The wine is made from the indigenous Glera grape.
The Bisol winery has a family tradition that has tended its vines in the Valdobbiadene area since 1542! Jeio is a selection of vines chosen from plots scattered across the Prosecco hills. The name “Jeio” is the nickname given to Desiderio Bisol by his wife. The style of this prosecco is meant to merge the Italian way of life to an altogether more informal, carefree, cosmopolitan outlook. Refreshing, spontaneous and informal.
The Bisol Jeio Brut DOCG Valdobbiadene Prosecco is a bright medium lemon colour. It has a fresh stonefruit in particular peach with a touch of lemon on the nose. With a bit of air, you also get a crisp apple aroma.
The wine is slightly off-dry. Tiny creamy bubbles fill your mouth. Fresh clean peach flavour with lesser amounts of other stonefruits and lemon. You get a hint of lime toward the finish. Also with air you also get some crisp apple flavour. It has a medium-plus length finishing with lingering stonefruit flavours and tart citrus.
If you don’t drink this bottle all in one sitting, I can tell you that the wine gets a stronger sweet stone fruit nose. On the palate, the bubbles get a bit larger but they still give you a creamy mouthfeel. You get some lees flavour. There is a bitterness that is quite prominent to the wine as well as the stonefruit flavours. So I much prefer to open and enjoy this wine than to reclose the wine and drink it the next day.
Rating: – This medium-bodied prosecco has nice stonefruit aromas and flavours, with a lesser amount of citrus. Nice tiny creamy bubbles. Slightly off-dry. Enjoy upon opening.
