Santa Margherita Brut Rosé review: Which food pairs well with it?
Santa Margherita Brut Rosé is a light, refreshing and bubbly sparkling wine.
Bubbles cleanse the palate and as such sparkling wines are very versatile wines that can pair with many dishes and can be used throughout a meal.
Classic appetizers are Parma ham, cured meat, tofu, salads, salty olives, and bruschetta to name some.
Meat wise go for pork, chicken, and spicy curry dishes for example.
For fish, we recommend shrimp, grilled, and fried fish.
If you are a cheese lover you should try it with semi-soft and hard cheeses Baby Swiss and Parmigiano to name some.
Santa Margherita Brut Rosé review: What's its alcohol content?
Santa Margherita Brut Rosé wine’s alcohol content is 11.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Santa Margherita Brut Rosé wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per gram vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per gram of carbs, which include sugar.
Since this is a brut wine it will have less than 4 calories per grams.
What is Santa Margherita?
Here is an extract from the Santa Margherita brand website:
“Man is at the center of our daily routine.
With neither rhetoric nor false modesty, the Santa Margherita philosophy – established by Gaetano Marzotto himself –….
…has always been to respond to the needs of our own community (grape suppliers, staff, partners, clients) by offering the maximum quality.“
This is a crisp, refreshing, and light sparkling Brut Rosé that you’ll get for around ~$20.
Peach, citrus, strawberry, and a mineral finish will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, white and red meats, and our beloved cheeses.
Try Santa Margherita Brut Rosé with cured meat, roasted vegetables, chicken sandwich, fish and chips, or Parmigiano cheese and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
