A sparkler called “Voile” from producer Fontezoppa in the Marche region of Italy (it’s the calf of the boot) offers lovely freshness from the verdicchio grape. 
Fontezoppa “Voile” Vino Spumante Brut. This simple and pleasing refresher, sporting fast-moving bubbles that settle quickly, offers peachy scents on the nose, Meyer lemon and apple on the palate, and a clean finish. Around $12.

Passerina Brut Velenosi, Charmat Method
The Passerina vine, with its rich aromatic properties, is particularly apt to make sparkling wine with the Charmat method. From harvest to fermentation, a new, very fine wine is produced, aged on the lees for about 90 days (Charmat Lungo). The wine obtained is a sparkling wine with a fine and persistent perlage, creamy and silky, with heady and enthralling scents creating and living up to the expectations and makes you want to drink more. Alcohol content: 12,5%
Colour: Bright yellow with greenish shades. Persistent and thin perlage.
Smell: A successful fusion of soft fruity nuances and fresh flowery sensations. Intense, fine, fragrant, recalling acacia flowers, pleasurable and very elegant, with white fruit, peach and citron aromas.

Excellent persistence with an agreeable taste/smell match. [...]
