File this Under: Not Italian, But Still Delicious

Hot weather, short sleeves and beach BBQs.  That’s what this amazing little pink sparkling Txakolina Rubentis from Ameztoi is all about.  Fresh, fruity and not without a good dose of salinity for balance, this wine is the ultimate summer sipper.  I just love the color too- sunset pink with gorgeous, happy bubbles.

The Rubentis is made from 50% Hondarribi Beltza and 50% Hondarribi Zuri grapes- both indigenous and common to Getariako Txakolina.  This is a tiny vineyard region on the northern Atlantic coast of Iberia: Basque Country, a region relatively close to Rioja that is making wines which are millions of miles from anything else bottled in Spain.
