Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called ?Champagne? if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or ros? (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.
"Red cherry in color and pointedly spicy, this wine has a fine bubble that gives it a zesty feel and creates delicate nuances to the fruit, even though the flavors are concentrated, belying that light and airy mousse. Citrus, smoke and leather scents rise out of the glass, capped by a stinging acidity that needs food, like a chorizo-laden paella."
