Recommended wine: Sparkling Wine, Sparkling Rose
Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Antipasti. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. You could try Pierre Peters Cuvee Reserve Grand Cru. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 65 dollars per bottle.
Pierre Peters Cuvee Reserve Grand CruThe wine is clear or pale with hints of green typical to the Chardonnay. The mousse is fine and regular with a pretty ribbon of strong bubbles. The first nose is both flowery and fruity, then comes notes of fresh nuts and fresh bread. In the finish there is citrus which brings a beautiful impression of smoothness and freshness. The attack is frank, associated with delicacy and roundness. The first impression is dominated with fresh white fruits (lemon and pear) and with flowers (acacia), followed by creamy notes. The finally is persistent on the citrus (candied grapefruit, tangerine and lemon) and minerality, bringing freshness and elegance to the wine.
