Italy: Italian Dry Sparkling Wines

What about Italian Bubbly?
Italian Bubbly is widely produced and ranges from the cheap and cheerful (Prosecco) to the world class (Franciacorta). Franciacorta is a rapidly emerging superstar that has the right mix of climate, geography, and varietals to give Champagne a run for its money. Located in the foothills of the Alps, near the Swiss border, Franciacorta is a bit of a secret in the Anglo world, but as production and quantities increase, look for it to become more widely known as one of the world’s very best sparkling wine zones.
