5 Bestselling Sparkling Wines Under $15 That Actually Taste Good

Happy Hour: Clelia Romano ‘Colli di Lapio’, Fiano di Avellino 2004

Last Tuesday night I found myself on a date with a surfer from Maine at one of San Francisco's hottest new spots A16. You know I'm crazy about wine experimentation, and my date was willing to come along for the taste adventure. The waitress was 100% knowledgeable on most of the wines and recommended we try a Fiano, so we most happily obliged her. A Fiano is a highly regarded dry white wine whose grapes are grown in the Campania region, east of Naples in Italy. This wine was excellent with a clean vibrant palate and a smooth finish, there were subtle flavors similar to that of a refreshing brut champagne. It was very pale in color with delicate floral aromas with an underlying hazelnut note. I enjoyed this wine so much that I am contemplating hunting down another bottle.

I think my next wine club is going to be Italian whites, so I'm totally going to remember this one.
