I've always been in love with Italy and the beauty of it's colors. The first time I drank anything that could be consider wine was Booze farms $2 a bottle ( sometimes ). The cheap food coloring would linger in my mouth as the alcohol would increase my heart rate to it's fullest delight. I was much younger then. Of course, I've had the wine that most people would have at weddings, the silver tip on the green bottle that would reading Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. The collective bubbles would fill my plastic wine looking cup and glitter in my mouth, most of it was inhaled that every secound. Later, I tried a dessert wine with one of my friends which we later just addressed it to desert wine and never really found the name for it. After a while I would try dry bitter wine that really didnt take any liking to my taste. I finally got hooked on Lambrusco by Rinunite, by far it's the one I keep at all times just to keep it. Then I started tasting A red sweet wine, called La Dida, which I've discovered is a very fun and sweet wine and then I moved on to Riesling wine.. I've decided to take a journal of all the wines I've tasted................ but I would love to have some wines choices by you guys.. Give me the name of the wine and your name and the location you are from.. I'll keep you guys posted.

Welcome to Snooth.
You might want to take a look at Bracchetto, a lightly sparkling red wine from Italy that is similar to Moscato. lambrusco, also from Italy can be more winy but is still lightly sparkling and varies from quite sweet to bone dry so ask your retailer for one that will be sweet enough for you.
That's a start. Let us know what you think!

Bingo. Exactly what I was going to suggest. It's like drinking sparkling strawberries and usually only 6 - 10 percent alcohol
