Sipping on Sparkles: The Magic of Dom Perignon Spumante!

It has a rich, golden color and a delicate, harmonious flavor with notes of citrus and white fruits.

On the palate thre are subtle nuances of fresh fruit such as apricots and peaches along with lemon zest and honeycomb.

Types of Champagne: Spumante

Spumante is not a type of Champagne. It is a sparkling produced in the Piedmont region of Italy, made from Muscat Bianco grapes. Champagne is only produced in the Champagne region of northeast France and must abide by certain regulations to be officially designated as “Champagne”. Furthermore, the two wines are crafted differently: Champagne is made using a traditional method that involves a secondary fermentation in the bottle while Spumante is made using the Charmat method which involves a secondary fermentation in tanks.

What Characteristics Define a Spumante Wine?

A wine is considered a spumante when it naturally contans carbon dioxide, giving it its signature effervescence. This occurs when the wine ferments in a bottle, which traps the carbon dioxide gas released during fermentation inside. The process of making spumante is known as “méthode ancestrale” and involves bottling the wine before all of the sugar has fermented so that carbonation can occur naturally. Spumante can be made from any grape variety but usually include chardonnay or pinot grigio for white wines and pinot noir for rosés and reds. The resulting sparkling wines are light and refreshing with a sweet or dry finish depending on the type of grape used.

The Origin of the Name ‘Spumante'

Spumante is the Italian word for “foaming” or “sparkling,” and it is used to describe any type of sparkling wine made in Italy. This name was chosen to indicate the drink's effervescent quality, which is created by trapping bubbles of carbon dioxide gas inside the wine during the fermentation process. The result is a bubbly texture and a light, refreshing flavor that has made spumante one of Italy's most popular wines
