This is a sweet red sparkling wine from northwest Italy. Low in alcohol (6.5%) and high in fun. It is made from 100% Brachetto grapes. Maroon in color, frothy, clear and bright. The nose is interesting with tomato paste, red peppers, tomato vine and some raspberries. Easy to drink. Sweet and tasty. On the palate, cherries and sour cherries. Not too different than the Faygo Red Pop of my youth. Refreshing. Long finish. This drinks nice on its own and will work with cheeses and perhaps a not too sweet chocolate dessert. Drink now. This bottle was Lot L211955.
This is a lightly sparkling (frizzante) red wine from Italy. It is made from Brachetto grapes. This is meant to be an easy, low alcohol (5.5%) fun wine and it achieves that goal. Ruby in color with a pink froth. Clear and bright. The nose has cherries and sour cherries. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is sweet with cherries, strawberries and candied cherries. It is easy to drink and probably a bit better on its own that with food although it will work well with chocolate. Drink over the next year or two.
This is another fun wine from this producer. It comes in attractive packaging although the screw top actually has a tiny leak in it and left a small pool in the fridge. No worries, the wine was sound and it is only the second time I have seen such a closure fail. This is a lightly sparkling (frizzante) rose that checks in at 5.5% abv. It is a blend of Moscato and Brachetto grapes. Pale salmon in color a white froth. The nose has pink grapefruit and strawberries and slight simple syrup notes. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is semi-sweet with nice watermelon notes. Great acidity
