Ballatore Red Blend California Rosso Red Spumante 1975
If you like Asti-style sparklers, it’s time to think pink. This wine starts out as winemaker Spirito Ballatore’s classic Gran Spumante; then he blends it with red wine to create great color and flavors. With a touch of sweetness, this bubbly is balanced by the tannic components in the red blend.
Sweet. Little aroma, but a big hit on the 4th of July!
Yowsa. This is sweet, bright pink, and tastes like strawberry soda. If you like strawberry soda, this is the 8% alcoholic version you've been waiting for. If not--skip it.
Beautiful flavor and a lasting impression leaves you wanting more

True to its name, the wine is crimson in color, and sweet, with honeyed raspberry cherry and vanilla flavors. Easy to drink due to the balanced sweetness.
Red in color, sugary sweet, this sparkler will have its fans, but it's really kind of cloying.
This is old-style pink Champagne, like they sipped from flat glasses in the 1930s. It smells like raspberry soda and cotton candy, and tastes sweet and fruity. Refreshing acidity provides the balance it needs.
