If I ask you to name Italy's great sparkling wine, you'd say Prosecco. Right? Sorry, wrong.
There is no denying that Prosecco has exploded throughout the wine-drinking world, conquering the category of 'value-priced sparkling wine.' But it didn't have to be this way. The region of Franciacorta in Northern Italy produces some of the world's greatest sparkling wine - and have for a long time.
This four minute video, produced in Franciacorta by Ben Shapiro and Jeremy Parzen in Franciacorta, gives you a brief look at the people, place, and food of the great Italian Sparking Wine Region. Enjoy.
