Recipe Summary test
Salt-packed capers are available at specialty food shops and Italian markets. Brined capers that have been rinsed can be substituted.
The delicate flavors and buttery-creamy texture of the mascarpone and the sweetness of the corn-based crespelle call for a round and rich-flavored sparkling wine with a mouth-filling texture. The wine also needs enough acidity to stand up to the pungent capers.
