Ever since a few of the girls from my book group went to Italy I have loved Prosecco. They said that in Italy it was used as an aperitif. The perfect accompaniment to antipastos or appetizers.
Prosecco is dry and bubbly, very bubbly.
I really enjoy it with anything salty, like cheese and olives.
Many people compare or confuse Prosecco with champagne. you shouldn't as the price and taste is decidedly different.
If you are looking for something that Venetians consider a apperitivo or ombrette (pick me up)
Prosecco is the right choice.
I am enjoying one right now.
