Later this evening, I will be assisting Altacucina Society in hosting a tasting of Italian Red Sparkling Wines. I know, it sounds funny, but there are many red sparklers in Il Bel Paese. Some use the term frizzante while others are labeled spumante. This depends are their production methods, traditions and a whole host of factors which will be explained this evening. The event should be fun and something different. If you are in New York today, please check out the website and come on down…Let’s toast to the start of the Fall season.
