For a bubbly and refreshing start to an evening, many Italians indulge in a glass of Prosecco. Similar to champagne, a prosecco can range from fruity and sweet to slightly more dry. But there are other sparkling wines that are equally appealing.
Last night before our Greek mezethes, we tasted a particular type of sparkling white wine called Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze. It is grown and produced only in Treviso in San Pietro di Valdobbiadene in Barbozza.
This wine packs quite a punch – in the cork that is. When Ed opened it, the cork shot skyward, smashed into our 15-foot ceiling and bounced into the other room!
Absolutely delicious – I highly recommend this wine. We’ll be enjoying it again.
