Continuing our frantic quest to observe this most religious of periods we opened a bottle of sparkling wine sent to us by one of the more pious of our wine vendors. LaMarca Prosecco D.O.C.($13 Total Wine & More) is one of the least expensive sparkling wines in town. It comes from a cooperative of 7,000 local grape growers in the Veneto region of Italy. Nonetheless, it has all the qualities your guests will be looking for when celebrating. A crisp, fruity nose, it is dry, it has good acid and a pleasant finish. Best for toasts. Drink this year.
