Review: Cecilia Beretta Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco


Cecilia Beretta Conegliano Valdobbiadene is one of the newest (and hardest to spell) Proseccos available at your local neighborhood Trader Joe’s, though you can find it at other wine stores if you look hard enough. Cecilia Beretta has been producing a number of fine wines for years despite originally being more focused on agricultural research during their earlier years. Fortunately for both them and us, they shifted direction slightly, and since then, they have been devoting a significant portion of their energies into producing a quality portfolio of wine.

The Cecilia Beretta Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco is a great example of that. It is has a great balance of both weight and flavor that really make this an ideal Prosecco for pairing with many different meals. The light melon flavors do not over power in anyway and the sweetness is right in line with where it should be.

My only complaint about the wine, and it is a small one, is the price. Buying so much wine at Trader Joe’s has completely skewed my perceptions of what is expensive. For $10, the Cecilia Beretta Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco is actually on the higher end of Proseccos at Trader Joe’s. It is a perfectly fine wine, in fact, I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I do believe you can get something just as good for a few bucks less.
