Italian Sparkling Wines

(Part 4 of my Wine Education)

Asti Spumante:  The standard for all Italian sparkling wines.  Made in Piedmont.  Very delicate bouquet and a fresh, sweet taste.

Prosecco de Conegliano:  A brilliant, sparkling white wine made in Venetia.  It must be drunk young.  it has a distinguished bouquet and a flavor underscored by a very slight trace of bitterness.

Moscato and Lacrima Christi del Vesuvio:  Also produced a sparkling wines.
