‘I tried Aldi, Tesco, Sainsbury & M&S Prosecco in a blind test, and found a bad deal’

Locking loose is a big reason to celebrate across the UK.

When Boris Johnson announced the route map for the return to default we were all left to reach for our favorite celebratory drink- trusted pint, a glass bubble or a nice old cup of tea.

A glass prosciutto has always been my passion for celebrating things like getting vaccinated, seeing a friend a year after an infection, or bringing it on the weekend.

Prosecco is, for me, an ordinary man, a fun and wallet-friendly version of its luxurious cousin-champagne.

I feel happy and luxurious when I order a glass Prosecco, but I never regret it. It never leaves me with a headache and always gives me a mild feeling when I lick its soft bubbles.

However, when I accepted the serious obligation to taste-test this Italian colorful wine, the Cambridge residents made it a little harder than I expected.

I was forced to keep track of all of my own brand Prosecco on my list because the bubbles in your mind were clear for all of you on Saturday bank holiday. But this proves my point that Cambridge is always looking for a bad deal.

I chose (I was able to find some prosecco shelves were empty) four supermarkets’ own brand or supermarket selected prosecco varieties for my blind taste test.

Valdobiatin Aldi’s best-selected Proceco Superior, Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Conegliano Prosecco Superior, Tesco’s Best Prosecco Fruit and Marks & Spencer Classics Prosecco Pro.

I have to say that I have no qualms about evaluating Prosecco quality other than living briefly in Italy, which gave me an indestructible love for cocktail Aperol Spirits (which contains Prosecco) and four years as an employee at the Ascot Racecourse, to be honest, almost ruined things for me.

So after some quick research, I decided to evaluate the drink on three main things. Appearance and Sound – Does It Celebrate Pop or Limp Cough? Vision – Is it a beautiful bubble and gold? And the taste – is it elegant and fun, or is it offensive and dull?

I cooled all the bottles for two hours.

Prosecco 1

A soft fizz and taste. It was a dry afterthought, which seemed somewhat unpleasant, but reminiscent of the wonderful pleasure I had in participating. The taste was sweet and floral, and I went back for more.

Rating: 8/10

Brand guess: M&S

Prosecco 2

It was pissier and smoother, but with much less flavor. It didn’t seem dry, so I didn’t reach the drop level I needed. Flower again- but all broccoli flower? Who knows.

Rating: 5/10

Brand guess: Sainsbury


Tasty but in the wrong way. It left a sour taste that I describe as “seriously bad”. A light fizz but overall, not a great experience.

Rating: 4/10

Brand guess: Tesco


The taste was soft and sweet, busy and dry. It had a slightly bitter aftertaste that I didn’t hate. Overall it was quite drinkable, and what more could you ask for in a budget drink? This is all I look for in a Prosecco.

Brand guess: Aldi


Prosecco 1 to 4 rows. Which one seems best to you?

Prosecco 1 : Sciencebury. I was surprised to find that Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference was my favorite- although the supermarket elite, I didn’t think they could beat the M&S range. I will be happily fixed!

Prosecco 2 : Tesco. I describe this as ‘well’. I will come back if I am pushed for the exam, but of course there are better cheap options.

Prosecco3 : Alti. This surprised me because many of their drinks fascinated me so much. I chose their classic Prosecco option, but next to that was an organic Prosecco, which would be nice.

Although this experience has kept me writing these proseco, I have not put off their great range.

Prosecco4 : Ms. Who knows, when it comes to bubbles, Sainsbury’s is more than just M&S! Although it was a passive option, Sainsbury’s surpassed everything for me.

I never gave Prosecco a great deal of thought before buying. I always believed that any prose would be enough for me. This experience has proven to me that I can choose!

Although Sainsbury’s is great, it’s a lot of fun to do this taste experiment with my housemates over the weekend.

Ultimately all we are looking for these days is a way to see our friends and loved ones safely. I suggest engaging in any celebratory fun you can celebrate within government rules at this time, or try a complete taste test yourself with your family to see if you think I misunderstood.
