What did everyone drink for NYE? I decided to go with a Prosecco. I had a sweet tooth and was craving some bubbly to pop open for the new year. I bought Chandelier Sparkling Wine from Fry’s Supermarket in Scottsdale, Arizona. Originally $12.99, it was on sale for $11.99. I liked the slogan for this Italian brand: “Pop open a bottle, and light up the room”. Also, the bottle itself was beautiful! Crafted with sparkling embellishments, it made it feel like it was worthy to drink while celebrating the new year.
Fresh and fruity! Notes of pear, apple and citrus. Juicy, smooth, and mildly sweet, this prosecco had a nice tangy body. I would rate this on more of the dry-ish end of the spectrum. Refreshing and not too bitter, I would highly recommend this sparkling wine.
