Ballatore Red Blend California Rosso Red Spumante 1975

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Ballatore Rosso Red Spumante was awarded the silver medal at the 2003 San Francisco International Wine Competition. This sparkler is sweet, fruity, and smooth. Guaranteed to liven up your next get together!

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.

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.
