About This Wine

We love Italy’s most common sparkling wine, known as Prosecco.

It’s made using a method called Charmat, which accelerates the process and gets the wine to market quickly. But that’s not the only winemaking method used in Italy to produce sparkling wine.

Franciacorta sparkling wine is made just as vintners in France craft Champagne. Known as the “Method Champenoise” (or the traditional method), Franciacorta receives its bubbles by allowing a secondary fermentation to occur in the bottle. During this fermentation, the CO2 that’s created is absorbed into the wine, instead of escaping as it does when fermentation occurs in a tank, creating the bubbles we love in Champagne.

This process also makes the wine drier than Prosecco, and that gives it something Italians love: food friendliness. Monzio Compagnoni’s “Brut” is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Nero — the Italian name for Pinot Noir — that pairs perfectly with linguine with a white clam sauce.

    Nice bit of yeast, good fruit, and nicely dry. Best Italian sparkler I've had.
