Selected Best Wine - Spring 2018

by Andrew Chalk Andrew Chalk

Martini & Rossi Sparkling Rose

Sparkling from Italy Italy

Average Price: $14.99

The Sparkling Rosé is a blend of Riesling Italico, Chardonnay, Glera, and Nebbiolo grapes designed to provide a straightforward rosé wine for special occasions. The Nebbiolo grape gives the wine its rusty, sunset color and the white grapes provide a multi-faceted palate, despite this being an inexpensive wine. It is made, as are all these wines using the Martinotti method (sometimes erroneously called the Charmat method), a way of producing sparkling wine in a tank, rather than in the individual bottle (the method used in Champagne).
