Walla Walla Wine Word for Dummies: Weekly Wine Word Wednesdays

The Weekly Walla Walla Wine Word for Dummies is: Frizzante

They are fizzy, foamy, and frothy = frizzy = Frizzante!

Frizzantes are sparkling Italian wines with small bubbles. They offer a refreshing crisp tingle while helping to subdue the sweetness of a wine, especially with Moscato d'Asti. Frizzante wines are also considered to be slightly less effervescent than Champagne. So, if you find Champagne to be too “fizzy” for your tastes, frizzante wines may be your answer.

Frizzantes can be enjoyed like bubbles during celebratory events, summer sippers and even desserts.

Elio Perrone "Moscato d'Asti Sourgal" is a wonderful example of an imported frizzante from Italy. Also, keeping it "local" - Secco Italian Bubbles Moscato and Bubbles Manzoni Moscato Rose' are also frizzantes, produced and imported by Charles Smith of Walla Walla.
