I am not a wine drinker but this wine is something that I like to drink when I am just sitting around relaxing. It's not too sweet and it is not dry. Very refreshing.

So, so, so good! I love this sweet red wine. No bitter after taste. It tastes like grape juice with a kick. I prefer it at room temp. Love it!

Fairly sweet, but not overly so. Is slightly bubbly but not as much as a asti. You would like this wine if you tend to like the sweeter wines.

Roscato is an irresistible, delicately sweet, frizzante wine from the northern Italian region of Lombardy. Made from a blend of Moscato and Chardonnay, Roscato makes a wonderful aperitif and is also incredibly food-friendly. Roscato seamlessly combines a long-held grape growing tradition with the flair of modern winemaking techniques and style. The result is a wine of enticing character that perfectly meets the surging demand for sweet, slightly sparkling wines. With a low alcohol of 8% and a touch of sparkle to flawlessly balance the sweetness, Roscato is the ideal complement for today’s cuisine. Enjoy it with white meats, classic Italian dishes, spicy foods and more. Production Area Trentino and Lombardy, Italy Grape Varieties Moscato & Chardonnay Vinification Each variety is harvested and vinified separately, allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness. Following de-stemming, the must is macerated with the skins allowing it to retain maximum fragrance. The must is kept at a low temperature until fermentation, at which point the two varieties are blended together. When the wine has reached an alcohol content of 8%, fermentation is interrupted by lowering temperature to approximately 32°F leaving a high level of natural residual sugar. Color Pale straw color with fine, delicate bubbles Bouquet Delicate aromas of peach, yellow apples and candied citrus. Taste Sweet yet refreshing with a lingering finish Alcohol 8% Serving Suggestions Highly versatile. A great aperitif and equally splendid with white meats, classic Italian dishes, and spicy foods. Enjoy well chilled.

Roscato is an irresistible, delicately sweet, gently fizzy red wine from the northern Italian region of Lombardy. Made from three native grape varieties grown in this beautiful region for centuries – Croatina, Teroldego and Lagrein – Roscato makes a wonderful aperitif and is also incredibly food-friendly. Roscato seamlessly combines a long-held grape growing tradition with the flair of modern winemaking techniques and style. The result is a wine of enticing character that perfectly meets the surging demand for sweet red blends. With a low alcohol of 7% and just a touch of sparkle to flawlessly balance the sweetness, Roscato is the ideal complement for today’s cuisine. Enjoy it with tomato-based sauces, classic Italian dishes, spicy foods and more. Serve chilled. Production Area Lombardy, Italy Grape Varieties Croatina Teroldego Lagrein Each of these unique indigenous northern Italian grape varieties contributes its own special character to the wine. Croatina lends beautiful floral and fruity aromatics, while Teroldego creates much of the structure and deep color in the wine. Lagrein imparts a lush texture to the palate. Vinification Each variety is harvested and vinified separately, allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness. Following de-stemming, the juice is kept on the skins for several days at low temperatures to extract the fruit’s aromas and color. When the wine reaches 5% ABV, fermentation is halted by refrigeration and the wine is blended. A natural second fermentation in tank creates a delicate “frizzante” (sparkle) in the wine. The second fermentation is halted when the wine reaches 7% ABV maintaining an ideal touch of natural residual sugar. Color Brilliant ruby red Bouquet Intense aromas of blackberries and ripe wild berries Taste Fresh, lively and frizzante with a soft lingering finish Alcohol 7% Serving Suggestions Highly versatile. A great aperitif and equally splendid with tomato-based sauces, classic Italian dishes and spicy foods. Enjoy chilled. Please drink responsibly.

Winemaker's Notes:

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 bight acidity underlies the appeal of this charming wine. The traditional winemaking style for this fruit-forward red complements regional "heart and soul" cuisine such as bruschetta, calamari, pasta in red and cream sauces, breaded cutlets and spicier fare. Enjoy chilled.
