Sparkling rosé is one of the most versatile, food-friendly wines in the world. While the grapes used in these wines often vary by region, sparkling rosés have a great affinity with food. Pink sparkling wines have a real depth of flavour, but there's also a wonderful acidity to them which is important when looking to pair these with more complex food styles.
We've all come to know Chianti as the archetypal Tuscan wine; some is great, some not so great so how can we tell what to look for? Let's turn the clock back three centuries to when Chianti was first defined as a wine-making area in 1716. The original pocket of villages soon spread to encompass more and more villages and it wasn't until 1932 that Chianti was completely re-drawn into seven sub-zones that are situated in the original heartland of Chianti.
There is nothing wrong with enjoying a glass of Chianti on its own. However, in Italy, wine and food go together...
