Keep Fit with Wine #1 – Sacchetto Prosecco with Sardine Sandwich

Sardine Sandwich (Total: $23.4)
- 2 pieces of Bread with light butter spread ($2.3)
- 1 tomato sliced ($2.4)
- Half cucumber sliced ($1.8)
- Half tin of Sardine fish in olive oil ($16.9)

Sacchetto Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry DOC ($68 Park’n Shop)
- Finer bubble than cava
- Limy nose
- Pear and peachy palate
- Sweeter than normal sparkling

Marriage: ***
-  Quite a good marriage, the savory fish and the hint of sweetness in prosecco cooperate well in palate.
-  The wine getting a bit acidic and bitter almond after 30 mins.

More about Sacchetto Prosecco:
This is from a region in Italy called Veneto. Sacchetto is a town where the Prosecco is most famous from. The most famous brand is Cantine Sacchetto. Prosecco could only be called Prosecco if they are produced in Veneto, same restriction as Champagne in France. They meant to be drink early and part of its fermentation process is done outside bottle, which makes the sparkling cost way lower.

Lunch time, cheers~
