91 Points, James Suckling
The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.
We were the first in the country to bring in Bisol’s Prosecco Rose last year, a super tasty, refreshing sparkler from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Now, fresh off a huge feature in The Wall Street Journal in which they were crowned as the top Prosecco Rose in a lineup of 14, I suspect what was once our little secret will explode. James Suckling also finally got around to tasting it and gave it 91 points. I’d rate it even higher. The 2020 Bisol Jeio Brut Prosecco Rosé is remarkable, and simply put, mouth-wateringly delicious. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles.
This champagne is so good, it’s often a staple on the wine lists of Michelin two and three star restaurants. It offers elegant aromatics, pristine fruit and the crisp, mineral finish that screams for food. We loved it so much, we asked Jacques Diebolt to bottle a special cuveé for the restaurant– and he happily agreed!

This is a Nicholas Faithful favorite. La Cravantine, is a sparkling rosé of 100% Cabernet Franc, bone-dry, super fresh and with bubbles so tiny and fine, it puts most “real” Champagne’s to shame. Appealing strawberry and mineral scents are encased in a firm structure with a dry and spicy quality in the palate. This wine is incredibly versatile – perfect with just about any fish, fried food, or do like I do and enjoy it on it’s own.
Fransesco Vezzelli’s Lambrusco is easily one of the best expressions of the grape around. He’s been making wine since 1958, and he’s a strict and meticulous man who controls every aspect of the operation from winemaking to ensuring his wine is temperature controlled every step of the way to America because he says it’s essential to preserve the wine’s freshness and superior aromatics. This is a delicious sparkler that is guaranteed to be the freshest, most enjoyable sparkling Lambrusco you’ve ever tasted.
This is a fun little wine people are going to like. The Luca Paretti Sparkling Rose is a beauty and is a sensational value for the price. The big reason it flies under the radar at this price is due to the inaugural year of the Prosecco Rose designate, which this wine misses on an account of not being made with 85% Glera. No matter, this Merlot/Raboso blend embarrasses most of the Prosecco Roses I tasted– offering superior aromas of wild strawberry, melon fruit and a hint of jasmine. The bubbles are super tiny and refreshing making this one way too easy to drink.
