Directed by Paul Feig, Bridesmaids focuses on the ups and downs of friendship amidst the chaos of wedding planning. The film follows Annie, a hot mess played by Kristen Wiig, who also co-wrote the movie. Annie's bestie, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), asks her to be the maid of honor for her upcoming wedding. Annie navigates the trials and tribulations of organizing bridal events and managing a diverse group of bridesmaids, including the brash Megan (Melissa McCarthy), the burnt-out Rita (Wendi McLendon-Covey), and the loveable rube Becca (Ellie Kemper). Worst of all, Annie must confront the real possibility Lillian may have a new best friend and it isn't Annie, but rather the wealthy and competitive Helen (Rose Byrne). Celebrated for its relatable characters and wit, the film balances laugh-out-loud moments with heartfelt emotion and the enduring importance of friendship.
A movie this companionable needs accompaniment, like a Prosecco Rosé. Zardetto's extra dry 2020 Prosecco Rosé will do nicely. Crafted from a blend of Glera and Pinot Noir grapes, the Zardetto Extra Dry Prosecco Rosé offers a vibrant and refreshing flavor profile. The wine's aroma is delicate, characterized by notes of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and red currants. These fruity and enticing fragrances evoke the film's lighthearted and uplifting tone, while subtle hints of rose petals and citrus zest add complexity and depth to the wine's overall bouquet.
On the palate, the Zardetto's Prosecco delivers a refreshing and lively profile, with its bright acidity and delicate bubbles creating a pleasing sensation that mirrors the movie's quick wit and rapid-fire humor. The wine's fruity flavors and light body make for sipping as easy as "Bridesmaid's" laughs.
