Martin Isark says don’t be sniffy about Asti
I’ve tasted San Leo Asti – should you put a bottle in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?
Waitrose’s San Leo Asti blurb? A deliciously fruity and fresh fizz with some residual sweetness and a lovely soft, refreshing texture.
OK: Don’t be sniffy about Asti… its heady sweet floral aromas and flavours are match made in heaven for strawberries & cream, summer puddings, picnics and warm-weather chilling.
The tasting note: It might seem expensive at nearly a tenner for Asti, but that’s the price you have to pay if you want a fruit-driven sweet sparkler that’s going to impress from sip to swallow.
Can you drink it? Provided you are not allergic to sulphites, alcohol and yeast.
Should you put it in the trolley? Want an easy-drinking palate-pleaser that will impress your wine-loving mates too? Put a bottle of two in the trolley. Available from Waitrose.
