As a blogger one of the perks of the job is getting sent stuff to review. Sometimes its books, or restaurants to review and sometimes it ia alcohol!
A few months ago I was approached by independent wine seller Roberson Wine to review a bottle of my choice. At the time I was pregnant so I was unable to drink the bottle I had chosen, but a couple of weeks ago once Dexter had been born I was able to enjoy the bottle with friends, so today I am here to tell you about it.
Like most women I know I have a bit of a love for Prosecco, fast becoming the fizz of choice these days, prosecco seems to have over taken Cava and Champagne, due to its great rounded taste as well as it’s affordability! So it seemed only natural that Roberson Wine send me a bottle of my favourite fizz to taste.
The bottle they sent me was a bottle of Rivani Conegliano Valdobbiadene priced at £9.95
The website descibes Rivani as ‘A fully spumante non-vintage Prosecco that is produced in the premium Valdobbiadene area and is in an extra-brut style. Dry, refreshing, crisp and harmonious, it offers wonderful value for money and is perfect as an aperitif.’
Nik and I shared the bottle with friends and we all really enjoyed it. I have quite a sweet tooth and normally go for medium wines, so must admit I found it slightly drier than I would normally choose, however it does say extra dry on the label! Overall we agreed that it was very light, fruity, drinkable and very refreshing. Would I buy it myself, yes I would! Thanks again to Roberson Wine and Cheers!
