Most people on planet earth (over the age of let’s say 21) know little something about Champagne. But there is still so much to discover about Italian sparkling wine. Yes of course, it still contains our favorite part… the bubbles, but there is a lot more to the dynamic drink. Here are the top 5 things everyone should know about Italian sparkling wine.

  1. Prosecco isn’t an only child.
    1. There are 5 major types of sparkling wines from Italy which include Prosecco, Lambrusco, Franciacorta, Metodo Classico, and Asti Spumante. Get to them all!
  2. Spumante says it all.
    1. Whether they are dry or sweet - they are called spumante (spoo MAHN tay). The word “spumante'' simply means ”sparkling”. It’s not a sweet indicator.
  3. Younger the better!
    1. Unlike our friends in Champagne Italian sparkling wines are best when consumed young. Most Italian sparkling wines are done using the Charmat method. The wine’s second fermentation is done in a tank instead of in the bottle, and the resulting wine is bottled young.
