What Prosecco Bottles Should I Buy?

10 Helpful Bottle Suggestions When Choosing And Enjoying Your Prosecco

Prosecco is continuing its reign as the Queen of sparkling wines for the vast majority of UK sparkling wine enthusiasts. One of the great things about the current popularity of Prosecco is the sheer number of different Prosecco brands to be found on the shelves of your local supermarket, off licence or wine merchant and also those available to buy online.

 However, a substantial number of Prosecco brand choices can also make choosing a particular wine to suit your tastes a little more complicated or make getting into Prosecco for the first time a little daunting. 

With this in mind, our testers put some of the best prosecco on the market to the test. Each bottle was judged on appearance, taste, the overall experience and value.

All of the bottles were tested by more than six testers to account for the subjectivity of the individual taste-bud and preference

Here are 10 of the best prosecco bottles

1. Prosecco Romeo & Juliet NV Treviso, Pasqua: Majestic

Vibrant and bursting with colour, the design of this bottle alone is enough to make it a hit.

Interestingly, although located around 100km west of Treviso, the romantically inspiring city of Verona is where Pasqua was founded in 1925, as well as providing the backdrop for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Pale in colour and light to drink, this prosecco offered exactly the right combination of smooth bubbles and subtle taste. 

2. Sainsbury's Conegliano Prosecco, 75cl: Sainsburys​

A stylish bottle containing a crisp, smooth prosecco which is the perfect blend of delicate fruity flavours combined with the freshness of citrus. A lot of our testers commented on how easy this was to drink, and the fact that it was zesty and refreshing.

The flavour was neither too sweet nor too dry. And the price means it’s guilty-free!

3. Bottega Rose Gold Prosecco 75cl

This iridescent pink metallic-effect bottle is certainly a show stopper! One of the testers was concerned about the garish appearance, only to be quickly revoked by the others who concurred it was the perfect gift for birthdays and hen dos.

Indeed, it’s not just the bottle that’s pink, the prosecco itself is rose. With a delicate hint of berries, it’s fresh and enjoyable to drink on a night out or during afternoon tea, rather than with a meal.

4. Hotel Chocolat Classic Prosecco

Light-yellow in colour and refreshing on the palette, our testers found this refreshingly dry and incredibly easy to drink. It went well as an accompaniment to mince pies and chocolate, as well as savoury snacks. Can be purchased on its own or as part of a Hotel Chocolat hamper.

5. Lot Folletto D’oro Prosecco DOCG

You could freely fool dinner guests into thinking you had paid substantially more for this incredibly stylish looking bottle. This fruity flavoured prosecco contains a hint of apple and peach and testers commented on the gentle bubbles and pleasant after-taste

6. Princess.P™ Black Premium Prosecco

Sourced directly from a family vineyard in Italy, Princess.P™ Black Premium Prosecco is created using no animal by-products. Consequently, it’s vegan friendly and organic.

While many wines are made using fining agents such as milk protein, gelatine, egg whites and isinglass (made from the swim bladders or fish), Princess.P™ Black Premium Prosecco is made using only a natural earth clay or vegetable protein in the fining process. 

Testers remarked on the lovely delicate bubbles. Dry but fruity in taste, it was delightful!

7. Prosecco Spumante Conegliano

From the Veneto region of Italy, this prosecco looked stylish and tasted fresh and fruity. It had a nice aftertaste that wasn’t too overpowering and was described as very ‘drinkable’ by the testers. 

8. Prosecco La Marca CuvĂ©e

Made in the Treviso area of Northern Italy, it is made using the Charmat method. Our testers liked the soft, smooth texture, combined with the delicate fruity hints. A great all-rounder which was rich but not too heavy.

9. San Leo Prosecco Brut

With an air of sophistication, this bottle looks good. Our testers unanimously agreed that the prosecco was a great drinking experience. Smooth and bubbly, it was slightly dry, fresh and not too sweet so you could drink glass after glass.

10. Prosecco di Valdobbiadene

Fresh, crisp and delicately floral, this prosecco isn’t too sweet. It’s it a definite crowd-pleaser if you’re willing to pay a bit more.
