Recommended wine: Sparkling Wine, Chianti, Verdicchio, Sparkling Rose, Trebbiano
Crostini works really well with Sparkling Wine, Chianti, and Verdicchio. 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. The Ruinart Brut rosé ( half-bottle) with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 56 dollars per bottle.
