Five outstanding Proseccos to fit any budget

Bosco del Merlo, Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, Brut, 2018

The tasters this year were delighted to see a really polished, relatively inexpensive Prosecco from the heart of the Italian sparkling wine region – Valdobbiadene.

Selling in the UK for a little under £10, it provides a taste of top-end Prosecco at almost entry-level prices, and, as a result, proved to be our best-value pick of this year’s competition.

In terms of style, the Prosecco is a fairly dry, and classified as a Brut, although it has plenty ripe fruit, with pleasing flavours of pear and honeydew melon. Making this sample stand above its competitor set in this year’s Prosecco Masters was some attractive floral notes and a fresh citrus edge.

Retail: £9
Residual sugar: Brut (7g/l)
