When it’s time to celebrate, Italians choose Prosecco over Champagne every time – and “the Sacchetto family winery has a long history of making excellent Prosecco,” says The Independent Wine Review. Called “easy to drink and great value for money,” their regular, non-vintage sparkler was named the No.1 bubbly for New Year's in London’s Sunday Express – and this is their top-quality vintage fizz.
Named for Filiberto Sacchetto, who founded the family winery (just outside Venice) nearly a hundred years ago, “Fili” is the handiwork of the talented Paolo Sacchetto. The listing of a vintage on the label signifies that it’s a wine made in an excellent year (hint: 2015 was one of the best in decades), with premium Glera (Prosecco) grapes exclusively from that year. This new release boasts commendations from both the International Wine Challenge and the Decanter World Wine Awards.
Pop the cork on this eye-catching bottle and look forward to layers of apple and lemon, with a delicate stream of slow-moving bubbles. Hand dinner party guests a glass as they walk in the door, and keep a well-chilled bottle by your appetizer spread, or on the table with seafood, light pastas and more. Or, enjoy in the form of a brunch-friendly Bellini (with a splash of fresh peach juice) or as part of Italy’s classic aperitivo, an Aperol Spritz (simply combine three parts Prosecco with two parts bitter-orange, Aperol liqueur and a splash of club soda). Of course, it’s also delicious anytime on its own, or as the centerpiece of a festive toast.
