Spumante means "sparkling wine" in Italian. Technically, any and every sparkling wine made in Italy is considered spumante. Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine typically made with the Glera grape hailing from the Italian village Prosecco near Trieste.
Prosecco, with its light and spritzy bubbles, is often the magic ingredient in many spritz and wine cocktails. Good Clean Spumante (made with Lambrusco grapes in Emilia-Romagna, famous for its high acidity and berry flavors) has a place in every cocktail that calls for bubbles. It's slightly sweet, but with no sugar added it's low-sugar and low-carb wine.
Anything you can do with Prosecco, you can do with Good Clean Spumante.
Aperitif: An alcoholic drink before a meal to prepare the palate and body for the food to come.
Brunch: Spumante is wonderful in a mimosa.
Dessert: Add Spumante as an ingredient to cake batters, frostings, and gelatin desserts for a slight fizz, or serve with strawberries, strawberry shortcake, cookies, or tiramisu.
Celebrating: Spumante is an exceptional, affordable bubbly, known as the Champagne of Via Emilia. It's being taken seriously as one of Italy's most refreshing affordable, food-friendly sparkling wines. Basically, it's a party in a bottle making a renaissance as a bubbly, fun, delicious, approachable, drinkable wine.
Cocktails: Spumante can be the effervescent heart of the Bellini, Aperol Spritz, Negroni, Martini, French 75, Kir Royal, Paloma, or Sparkly Julep. (Just to name a few...)
Spumante cocktails are a fabulous addition to any party and an easy way to fancy-up any affair. Substitute spumante for prosecco or champagne in mixed drinks.
