Bubbling Up

Spring is in the air! Time to try these two delicious sparklers

While the winter months are great for indulging in a hearty Barbaresco and a chunky stew, at Vino we’re gearing up for la primavera, which is why we’re dusting off two of our favorite springtime sparklers: by Cascina Castlèt and Lini’s darker Lambrusco, Moscato d’AstiScuro. Try them this Friday at Vino. And at these prices what better way to start the weekend?

moscato-scuroMoscato d’Asti 2007 Cascina Castlèt
Named for its “musky” aroma when picked from the vine, Moscato is one of the oldest grape varieties known to man: the ancient world coveted the grape and generously praised its virtues as a superior wine variety. Today, Moscato is still grown all over Italy. Mariuccia Borio, owner of Cascina Castlèt as well as Piedmont’s regional delegate for the National Association of Women and Wine, produces this elegant, slightly sparkling sweet wine which pairs beautifully with fresh fruit. $15

Lambrusco Scuro 2007 Lini
A deeper, more tannic alternative to its popular cousin Labrusca Rosso, Lini‘s Lambrusco Scuro is the perfect dry, red sparkler to drink with the heavier foods often favored in cooler months. Emilian producers Fabio Lini and his daughter Alicia honor their 100 years in the Lambrusco business with the striking austere Lini910 label. But don’t be put off by the bottle’s austerity, for inside is a fun, bubbly wine just waiting to be enjoyed. $14

Taste both of these fantastic sparklers at Vino’s FREE Tasting, this Friday, February 27 from 5:30pm!
