When most people think of Italian wine, they think of the lush, robust reds of Tuscany or the delicate white wines of Piedmont.
They don’t generally think of sparkling wine…but they should!
Italy produces more different kinds of sparkling wine than any other country in the world.
In fact, they have been crafting spumantes (literally, sparkling wines) since Roman times, long before Dom Perignon popped his first cork.
From the light, off-dry Proseccos to the classic Franciacortas, Italian sparkling wines are varied, tasty, and often quite affordable.
