Enza Prosecco Launched For the Holidays

| November 27, 2012

Prosecco is a drink I can never tire of, and Enza is one you should look out for at your local liquor store starting in December. enza proseccoLaunched by Deutsch Family Wine and Spirits, Enza retails for $14.99 and is born of DOC grapes from the Treviso region of Italy. The packaging beautifully captures elements of Italian style and sensuality, compelling one to explore what its contents has to offer.

To quote Deutsch marketing director Renato Reyes, ‚ÄúWhen we developed the brand, we wanted to create an image of sophistication and style that is synonymous with¬†Italy. We are delighted with the fun and fiery design that truly brings Enza to life.‚ÄĚ

Produced by the Soligo cooperative which was established in 1957, in collaboration with the Pozzi family, this sparkling wine, which incidentally mixes and matches nicely with a wide range of foods, has a hint of honey, green apple, peach and honeysuckle, as well a slight touch of citrus. The Soligo cooperative has been family owned for three generations and represents the families of growers in the Prosecco DOC region who share a passion for this celebrated beverage.

Prosecco is starting to become more popular by the day, and is equally popular with men and women. It can be enjoyed by itself of course, but is also thoroughly enjoyable and versatile as a base for a plethora of delicious cocktails.

Unfortunately, wine experts have had a rather negative view of¬†Prosecco, and to make that point, I quote wine expert Tom Stevenson who several years ago wrote this in his comprehensive reference book ‚ÄėSotheby‚Äôs Wine Encyclopedia.‚Äô ‚ÄúThis grape is responsible for producing a great deal of very ordinary Italian sparkling wine. Latin lovers adore the soft bubbly produced by this grape, but the vast majority is boring, and it will take a revolution in quality to convince me that the grape is suitable for dry sparkling wines.‚ÄĚ

Judging by the increased selection of Prosecco available at the likes of Whole Foods and BevMo, maybe that revolution has begun and Enza is a perfect example that is well worth having in your holiday drinks cabinet.
