DRINK OF THE WEEK
20th May 2024
La Vita Spumante
Marks and Spencer 6.50
Drinker Rating 90

When putting my TikTok review together for this wine I mistakenly thought the main grape variety for this wine would be Glera - which is the Prosecco grape - I was wrong it's in fact Trebbiano.

Trebbiano is an amazing grape, known as Ugni Blanc in France it's one of the most widely planted varieties in the world, however not all for wine, most of it is used in the production of cognac and in Italy it's often used to make balsamic vinegar.

So it's a good workhorse, if a little unremarkable and that suits this light M&S fizz to a tee! This wine is fresh and bright and at 6.50 a perfect party fizz - also a great base for a sparkling cocktail.

Cheers!
