One Response to Prosecco

  1. Phil says:

    Spumante is the Italian answer to Sparkling Wine in Italian. Prosecco is a white grape variety from the Veneto and Friuli regions. It was a naturally fermenting to sparkling wine grape and was little known outside Northern Italy until the late 1990s, when it became a less expensive alternative for Champagne, Cava and Sekt (especially after 1997 when the Asian economical crises frightened Europe).
