New Sparkling Wines from Italy to Austria
Sparklers are popping up in unexpected places. Here are three exciting new bottles.
Lini 910 Labrusca Lambrusco Bianco ($15)
Domaine de la Taille aux Loups Triple Zéro ($25)
Jacky Blot, a Loire wine broker and winemaker, creates this elegant, crisp sparkling Chenin Blanc with fully ripe fruit and no added sugar, a remarkably hands-off approach.
Szigeti Grüner Veltliner Brut ($24)
Several Austrian wineries are now producing sparkling wines with the crisp Grüner Veltliner grape. Teeny, frothy bubbles and bright fruit make this bottling incredibly refreshing.
