Santero Bessi Rosso Sweet Red Italy NV

Member Review by MattMcGinnis:

Bessi is the girl next door with doe eyes and little zippy secret. She’s light on her feet and best served cold in the hot sun. She never met a picnic she didn’t like. This soft sparkling sweet Italian non-vintage red isn’t fussy and won’t complain about being packed in the cooler next to individually wrapped American cheese slices. She’s a great accompaniment to cheese or savory and spicy snacks before you dig into the main course. Look: Bright ruby red with a burst of effervescence on the initial pour. Wave your sparkler in one hand and your Bessi in the other. Smell: A summer fruit salad with tart blueberries, cranberries, dried tobacco and hibiscus petals. Taste: Bessie is sweet sassy fizzy fun like fruit punch with a bite. It tastes almost exactly like it smells with an abundance of tart cranberry mellowed by tobacco. While this is a sweet wine, it’s not syrupy. It has just enough acidity and that light bubbliness to keep it from being cloying.

first time I try it and I'm sold, very nice and sweet best wine I have had. I've have had others but this one is by far my favorite.
