Santa Margherita Sparkling Rose

Wine of the Day: Santa Margherita Vino Spumante Rosé Brut

The most common Italian sparkling wine is Prosecco, which is a dry white sparkling wine made from Glera (Prosecco) grapes. However, Glera isn't the only grape to produce lovely Italian bubbly. We tried Santa Margherita's Vino Spumante Rosé ($24), which is a blend of 50 percent Chardonnay and five percent Malbec in addition to 45 percent Glera to achieve its salmon-colored hue.

This peachy wine is floral on the nose with a slight whiff of ripe berries, like a flower-flavored Perrier sans the sugar. On the tongue, rose, jasmine, and vanilla followed; a mouth-puckering finish helped those dry flavors to linger on the tongue. We'd likely pair this wine with a dozen shucked oysters, dressed in freshly squeezed lemon, and light antipasti before dinner. No wonder this wine quickly disappeared among our tasters.
