A £10 bottle of supermarket fizz has been crowned the finest in the UK, with judges praising its “pleasant balance” and “savoury style”.
We love popping a bottle of bubbly at any time of year, but there’s certainly something special about enjoying a glass of fizz around the festive period.
But if you’re not prepared to wait and see what’s behind a little cardboard door next time you fancy a bubbly hit, you’ll most likely be heading to your local supermarket to pick up a bottle of the good stuff.
In which case, let us aid your quest…
Respected reviews website Which? has done the - no-doubt gruelling and arduous - honours of testing all the prosecco offerings from the UK’s supermarkets; and they’ve finally named a winner.
The Which? team recorded prices and tasting notes to rank own-brand fizz from the shelves of supermarkets across the UK.
Coming up top was a £10 bottle of Valdobbiadene Prosecco from non other than convenience shop, Spar.
According to the reviewers, the store’s own-brand bubbly was worthy of the acclaimed Best Buy award, scoring 78%. Experts said that peach and white pear notes created a “pleasant balance” and “savoury style”.
If the £10 price tag is a little out of your budget, you’ll be pleased to know that Asda’s £6.50 bottle of Fillipo Sansovino Processo is the next best thing.
This “deliciously soft” wine is “perfect as an aperitif or with light fish and pasta dishes”, according to Asda.
The £10.99 San Leo Brut NV from Waitrose lands third place on the Which? shortlist of own-brand fizz. The tipple is described by one fan as “a very drinkable Prosecco which is ideal for larger parties where you want a decent quality in lots of quantity, without bankrupting yourself!”
Seeing as there are so many unexpected health benefits of prosecco, we think it’s probably a good idea if we just double-check all of the hard work undertaken by the Which? team, and do a test ourselves.
