Prosecco- sweet / dry what ?!

Question: Prosecco- sweet / dry what ?
Was the drink of choice of main characters in book I just finished and they seemed to really enjoy. Would like to know more and if any one here enjoys it as a casual sipping wine ?

Prosecco is an Italian white wine. Generally a dry(not sweet) sparkling wine most often made from Glera grapes (previously also known as Prosecco grapes). Glera grapes are grown and Prosecco is produced mainly in the Veneto region of Italy, traditionally in an area near Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in the hills north of Treviso.

Up until the 1960s, Prosecco sparkling wine was generally rather sweet and barely distinguishable from the Asti Spumante wine produced in Piedmont. Since then, production techniques have improved, leading to the high-quality dry wines produced today.

Prosecco is known as the main ingredient of the Bellini cocktail and has more recently become popular as a less expensive substitute for Champagne.

Too sweet for me but it's all a matter of taste. I just prefer dry wines and mostly reds. I'd use it to poach a fruit for a dessert.
