Come spring, carbon dioxide gets trapped in the bottle, and the wine gets fizzy. The Carpene Malvoti winery under the direction of Antonio Carpene is credited with changing that method in 1868.

    Snoothrank:

    Very light, very soft, very refreshing, very rich on apple taste. Its not Champagne as it doesn't have anywhere near the body you would expect to be getting but this is a much more summery light drink and its not bad at all. Read More

  • Santa Margherita Prosecco di Valdobbiadene 2007

    Snoothrank:
