Major Spumante Wines Prevalent in Le Marche

Major Spumante Wines Prevalent in Le Marche | 'Winebanter' | Scoop.it

There is a wide range of Spumante wine in Italy especially from Le Marche where the base grape is often Verdicchio but can also be from Montipulciano or Sangiovese or Pinot Noir grapes. I recommend twelve Spumante wines from the region that are of exceptional quality at a reasonable price. the region of Le Marche is gaining recognition for the wine making skills and quality of wines that have existed for centuries but are only now being appraised and appreciated in global markets with exports increasing each year.

Major Spumante Wines Prevalent in the Marches:
