Roscato Rosso Dolce is a blush wine produced in the Moscato d’Asti style, with residual sugars giving it an off-dry finish. Instead of the Moscato (Muscat Blanc) grape, it is produced with the red Italian Trentino-Alto Adige grapes Teroldego, Lagrein, and Croatina. This sparkling “blush” wine has been popularized at Olive Garden restaurants, but is also available from select retailers.
this is the best wine ever!!!!
Was looking for a bottle of Malvasia (Dezzani) stumbled accross this in my local HEB, and am suprising delighted at how compariable the two are. I love this wine
This wine has a sweet taste and is similar to Moscato. It doesn't leave a bad after-taste at all. I tried it on a whim, only purchased one bottle while I was visiting the South...Wow, I should have purchased more, I can't find it in the North.
After a tasting, I bought a bottle of this super sweet red. This wine has a good flavor and a lovely color in the glass. A bit too sweet for the middle-of-the-road wine drinker, however considering it is produced for the Olive Garden, this is not surprising. If cut with a bit of brut or tonic water, this would be a delightful treat on a summer night.
A sweet wine that ladies like... :) JerichoWine.com has this wine on sale for $9.49. http://jerichowine.com/Roscato_Rosso_Dolce.asp
I love red wines, I'm even part of Cooper's Hawk Sweet Club. When I went to Olive Garden the other day with my daughter I was looking for something close to Sweet Red and that's when I found LOVE with this wine... I have been browsing the internet looking for it and at every store... Addicted!
<3 LOVE this wine! Tried it at the Olive Garden. Can't find it in Colorado, but odered a case from NY, $9.99 bottle, with a case discount. Sweet but not too sweet and over-powering. Great with a meal, or by itself! Doesn't leave an aftertaste.
External Reviews for Roscato
Northern Italy provides a spectacular backdrop for Roscato, a violet-hued red with aromatic notes of cherry, blackberry and red raspberry. A touch of sweetness and bright acidity underlies the appeal of this charming wine. The traditional winemaking style for this fruit-forward red compliments regional "heart and soul" cuisine such as bruschetta, calamari, pasta in red and cream sauces, breaded cutlets and spicier fare. Enjoy chilled. - Winery
