About

The light and fruity, tank-produced bubbles from Northern Italy have had a boom sale in recent years.

It has taken the role as an alternative to expensive Champagne after Spanish Cava.

At best they are fresh and nuanced with their pure apple, pear and lemon tones, but they can also be too sugar-rich, sticky, and synthetic. So take care.
