Light a fire with this sparkler

La Marca Prosecco, around $17 is an elegant way to begin a weekend or celebrate the holidays.

Representing 7.000 local winegrowers who farm more then 17,000 aces in the Veneto region of northern Italy, La Marca was established more than 40 years ago. Made from glera grapes – indigenous to the hillside vineyards of Italy’s Prosecco’s capital, Trevino – this sparkling wine emotes elegance and sophistication.

After harvest in early September, the juice was allowed to cold settle before the first stainless steel fermentation.

The avalanche of tiny, energetic bubbles invites your senses to get the party started. This medium to dry wine has a crisp, clean beginning with cascades of white flowers and honey aromas.

White peach and baked apple notes blend with green apple and juicy lemon flavors that lead the way to a light refreshing finish.

Don’t save this for a special occasion. Pop the cork on a Sunday morning and light the aged wood in the fireplace. Whip up some Eggs Benedict or Belgian waffles with blueberry syrup. Or enjoy a fall luncheon of cracked Dungeness crab and drawn butter or mild cheese and toasted baguette.

This sparkler is a less expensive alternative to champagne. Prosecco is also the main ingredient for the Bellini cocktail, originating in Venice.
