Cheerful and lively, sparkling wines are ideal for a toast, to celebrate a special moment, for parties or aperitifs. Wines with bubbles are characterized by the production of froth, more or less persistent, when uncorked. This happens because when the cork is removed, the wine releases the carbon dioxide contained in the bottle in form of bubbles. These wines are produced mainly using Chardonnay, Pinot (Black, White, Meunier), Moscato White or Glera grapes, but in recent years other grape varieties are also increasingly used. When the production method involves refermentation in the bottle, it’s called Metodo Classico (or Champenois). When the froth takes place in autoclave, the Method is called Martinotti (or Charmat).
