Drink of the Week: Marotti Campi Lacrima di Morro d’Alba Brut Rosé

Tis the season for a good bottle of bubbly, and these days we’re filling our flutes with today’s Drink of the Week, Marotti Campi’s brut rosé. Italian sparklers always make an affordable option for the holiday season, and this bottle caught our eye for being crafted entirely from the Lacrima grape, a lightly fruity and higher-acid varietal found mostly in the coastal Marches region of Italy, east of Tuscany. Aromatic notes of wildflowers, along with flavors of tangy apples and cassis, mix with lively bubbles for the perfect match to all sorts of hors d’oeuvres, and at only $18 a bottle, you can stock plenty for your holiday festivities.
