The First-Ever Blue Prosecco Has Hit U.S. Shelves, And It's So Deliciously Extra

Saraceni wines has debuted the world's first blue sparkling wine, but Italians are having less-than-happy feelings about it.

Looking for a little something blue for your wedding day? Italian wine company Fratelli Saraceni has officially debuted Blumond, the world's first ever blue prosecco, in the United States, and TBH, it's totally worth using at the bachelorette party, too.

 

Say so-long to the days of choosing between only red and white wines. By adding the blue sparkling Blumond wine to the mix, you'll get not only a fun and vibrant color in your glass, but a sweet and fruity flavor made from prosecco, peach, and blue curacao.

However, while it's easy to be thrilled about the oh-so-cute Insta-worthy pics that are sure to come from this new hue of wine in the states, Blumond is causing a bit of a controversy in Italy, home of the prosecco.

Apparently, for prosecco to actually be considered prosecco or sparkling wine, it must contain 10 percent alcohol. However, Blumond only contains 7 percent, so you can see where the Italians would snubbing the apparent insult to the country's national tradition of wine.

 

The Daily Mail reports that Italians reckon Blumond will have to be labeled as a cocktail, long drink. Or aperitif (a drink appetizer) rather than blue sparkling wine.

And while the Italians might be turning up their noses at it, Fratelli Saraceni (the people behind the drink) are supposedly already in talks with Harrods to start selling the product in the department store.

Regardless of what you choose to call it, grab a bottle (or three) for yourself on Saraceni Wines website for $21.96 a bottle, and prepare for the endless photo ops!
