We are lucky to be able to work with lots of exciting sparkling wines from Italy that are made from unique or rare varieties. Ca de Noci’s “Querciole” is a perfect example made of the variety Spergola. Spergola used to be more widely found in Emilia-Romagna, and works beautifully in sparkling wines because of its naturally high acid. The wine acquires its bubbles through a second fermentation in bottle like Champagne or Trapiste ales. Aromatically there is a very pleasant hint of marmalade; on the palate it’s a serious food wine that is dry with strong tannins and occasionally sediment. This would be absolutely delightful with cured meats and cheeses at the beginning of a holiday feast, but has enough richness to stand up to whatever your main course may be. JR
