Rosé Sparkling Wine
Rosé sparkling wines tend to be fuller-bodied and more fruity than white ones. They are usually made by adding a small amount of red wine to white before secondary fermentation (the additional fermentation in the bottle that produces bubbles). Since they’re robust, rosé sparkling wines go well with dark meat like chicken thighs or rich Mediterranean flavors.
Look for the 2005 Marquès de Gelida Cava Brut Rosé Reserva ($16), the 2005 Llopart Rosé Brut Reserva ($20) or Schramsberg’s Mirabelle Brut NV ($25).
