Italian bubbly products range from the grapey, low-alcohol Moscato d'Asti to top proseccos from Valdobbiadene, which are increasingly seen as a credible rival to champagne and the top 'methode champenoise' sparklers from Australia, New Zealand and California.

The figures for the first nine months of 2014 revealed a 24 percent rise in sales of all forms of Italian sparkling wine.

The booming exports help compensate the stagnating domestic demand.
