The Veneto region of Italy offers some terrific wines, often at a bargain. Thanks to Chris Prosperi, we tasted and liked a dry rosé sparkling wine produced in Italy and selling here for $12.99 a bottle. Cantine Maschio is full of bubbles and gives off floral notes as you breathe it in and sip. It made us all grin and say, “What ever happened to enjoying wine without all the analysis?”
We used this rosé in a lemony sorbet-wine cocktail Alex Province invented, inspired by his travels in Rioja Spain.
