Welcome to the world of wine with Madeline Puckette and Justin Hammack, the authors of Wine Folly, with their at-a-glance guide to Italian sparkling wines, and what to look for when choosing a wine


Made using the same classic method as champagnes from the Champagne region of France, you’ll find these sparkling wines throughout Europe, including Italy where the finest examples are produced in the Franciacorta region of Lombardy and Trento in the Trentino-Alto Adige region of the Alps. Look for the words metodo classico to indicate this style of production.


Italy’s most popular sparkling wine is created with Glera grapes grown in Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. The best Prosecco wines come from Valdobiaddene.

The traditional Italian pairings include antipasti, cured meats, and almonds but if you really want to step up your game, try it with spicy Asian food.

About Italia!

True to form, this issue is packed with fascinating features and articles covering the Italian peninsula. You’ll love the evocative account of a visit to Genoa – our cover star this month – there is so much to see and admire, and take a boat trip out onto the Venetian lagoon to explore the forgotten islands, all with poignant tales to tell. Our newest writer Anna takes us on a tour of the Alta Maremma, once a marshy swamp and now the home to some of the finest wines in Italy, while the Po Delta is the destination for a weekend away.
