In the past 2 weeks, I had the chance to taste more bubbly than I drink in a year.
On special occasions like Valentine's Day it adds to the festive mood.
On February 14, shower your Valentine with bubbles.
In an amusing moment on the last day, Beatrice while pouring me the Conegliano Valdobbiadene Dry, Millesimato DOC showered my hand. Nobody was hurt and it was the next to most expensive Prosecco from Costaruel . It is made with the best grapes from vineyards on higher slopes, elegant. Maybe we could do without the music on their site.
I already mentioned in a previous post Le Vigne di Alice whose Conegliano Valdobbiadene Extra Dry Millesimato 2009 provided my brain with the needed oxygen at the Italian Wine Masters 2010 Tasting. Flavor wise think pear and tropical fruits.
Another small scale, family owned winery is La Farra, I tasted Spumante Extra Dry Selezione Oro (Gold Selection)...They say touch of acacia.
Last another small producer Terra di San Venanzio whose label is graced by an image of San Venanzio, poet and bishop of Poitiers, a local historic figure. Both brut and extra dry are worth a try.
Before you pick any great sparkling wine, make sure your Valentine is in the mood for it.
