Prosecco Pairing Notes
Description: Prosecco is a slightly sweet, bubbly Italian wine. It's fun, it's light and it's a great match for lots of different foods. Prosecco has light fruity flavours with just a touch of sweetness, but it is still very refreshing because of the bubbles. It's a great affordable alternative to more expensive French Champagne, making it perfect for everyday entertaining.
Prosecco is a great match for anything salty and sweet. The sweetness of the wine matches the sweetness of the melon, without dominating. And the light, refreshing bubbles help balance out the saltiness of the cured ham. This is also a good example of how regional food and wine can work well together - this is a classic Italian appetizer, paired with an Italian bubbly!
Wine suggestion: Try any Prosecco from Italy
ripe cantaloupe melon
