This month, I am leading a discussion for the Italian Food Wine Travel bloggers about sparkling Italian wines...just in time for the holidays.
You can read my invitation, here. You'll find more details in that post about the difference between Frizzante and Spumante; the different processes of creating bubbles - Metodo Classico, or Metodo Champenoise, versus Charmat, or Martinotti Method; and, while Prosecco is probably the most well-known Italian sparkling wine, at least in America, there's an entire range of Italian sparklers, including Prosecco Superiore or Prosecco DOCG, Lambrusco, Franciacorta, and more.
A few bloggers received a selection of Prosecco Superiore from the Consorzio of Prosecco Superiore DOCG, but everyone was free to explore any and all sparkling wines from Italy. Here's what the group will be sharing...
