Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero

Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero

I received a few notes from readers recently inquiring about the availability of the $7 Kirkland Prosecco which apparently disappeared from a few Costco stores (I’m not sure if that’s still the case because I saw new pallets arrive last week at the Costcos near me).

But readers were asking if there were any other low cost, but tasty alternatives in the bubbly realm.  So I picked up this Prosecco on my last visit, which has served me well in the past, to see if it would fit the bill.

Price was $9.99, a few dollars more than its Kirkland counterpart, but there aren’t a lot of options under $10. Spanish Cava is another way to go here for low cost and dependable, but we opted to stay with Prosecco.

This wine is light and easy, similar to the Kirkland bottle.  It’s subtle on the nose and in flavor, but simple, refreshing and enjoyable overall.  The wine starts with light floral aromas, with flavors of green apple and melon; feels soft and gentle in the mouth with a light effervescence; finishes dry.

I think this a good buy and a fair alternative to the Kirkland Prosecco, although I’m going to hang at 86 points, a point lower that the Kirkland one that earned a little more for the extreme value.  There’s lots to like here for bubbly fans.  It’s simple, subtle and pure; perfect before or after meals, and especially ideal on a nice warm day. Rating: 86 points

This disappeared from the Tallahassee Costco a couple years back. We miss it and prefer it (slightly) to the Kirkland brand.

I really enjoy reading all your reviews but unfortunately living in Arizona I usually can't find them at a couple of the Costco's I go to (the one in Scottsdale has a great selection of wines too) I wanted to share a great wine I just found and hopefully your Costco has it. It's called Colossal Reserva 2015 Casa Santos Lime and a steal at $7.99. It also got a 90 WS and a top 100 for 2017. All I can say is it's a great drinker. I don't know how to attach the picture so let me know if you do and want it. The item number I have is 1153043. Thanks again for the great job you do even if I can't always find the wines.

Thank you. Love to get recommendations. I will look for it on my next Costco trip. Sounds like a great buy.

As a fellow Costco wine shopper in the Atlanta area, do you feel one particular location has consistently better selection or value than another, overall?

Selection-wise I’d vote for Perimeter. Value-wise, they all seem pretty similar from store to store.
