Altesino, Blue Mountain, and Bottega Gold

The wines.

As you ramp up the last minutes of holiday planning (assuming you actually plan things), here are three bottles that will reward you, either as you drink them with friends or give them to some fortunate recipient. Bottega Gold sparkling wine, from the Veneto region of Italy, is a delicious bubble, or try the fine Blue Mountain Brut Okanagan sparkler. Each is $25. The elegant, almost understated Altesino Rosso di Montalcino will match with almost any holiday foods you cook up. It is refined, structured, light on its feet but with impressive length. $30.
