Info about, for or on the sparkling wines of Italy


Here are some links about, for or on the sparkling wines of Italy: 

  • Get to Know Sparkling Italian Wine – ". . .There are 5 major types of sparkling wines from Italy which include Prosecco, Lambrusco, Franciacorta and Asti Spumante. Get to know sparkling Italian wine." – September 23, 2013 – By Madeline Puckette – "About Us" – Source: WINE FOLLY – "The essential Guide To Wine"

  • It Is Not Always Prosecco - A Sparkling Italian Wine Primer – "Most wine drinkers assume “if it is Italian & bubbly, then it must be Prosecco”. I can not blame them, as Prosecco is the number one sparkling wine of Italy in production and export numbers. It is closely followed by Asti. Most consumers associate fine perlage (soft bubbles) and a more or less sweet taste with these two most known sparkling wines. But there is so much more to sparkling wines in Italy than these two. Just as you shouldn’t call any sparkling wine “Champagne” (a very American usage, it seems to me - hello California Champagne, you strange beverage), you shouldn’t call all Italian bubbles “Prosecco”, either. All these names mean a specific area and very often a specific method - and are protected by law! Here is a quick introduction to the most important styles & names. This is by no means a complete list. To learn more, come to one of our sparkling wine tastings - we hold one every Saturday." – "About vino roma" – Source: vino roma – "wine tasting in rome - Drink wine. Not too much. Mostly Italian."
  • The Luxe Adventure Traveler Guide to The Prosecco Road – "We love wine, but that wasn’t always the case. Neither of us really had much of a taste for wine until we moved to Italy. Part of the appeal of wine was visiting vineyards. They’re just so atmospheric. In spring, the new leaf shoots start appearing on the vines that had been cut back after the harvest; as summer days heat up, tiny grapes begin to appear; the onset of véraison signals the end of summer; and the fall sets the remaining leaves ablaze in a sea of gold. Particularly in Italy, vineyards are set among the most picturesque castles and hilltop towns. We’ve definitely visited some beautiful vineyards in the last couple of years, but the Prosecco Road, winding along spaghetti thin roads in the Prosecco Hills of the Veneto has some serious wow-factor." – By – "About Us" – Source: Luxe Adventure Traveler – "Adventure Travel with a Glass of Wine"  
  • Sparkling Wines of Italy – "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." – Thu, 03/24/2016 - 00:00 – By Sandy Mitchell – Source: – "is a website that covers multiple aspects of Italian contemporary life and tourism." – "News | Travel | Food & Wines | Culture | Lifestyle | Fashion | Moving to Italy | Learn Italian | Home & Garden | Places"
