Wow. Strawberries/roses, great nose, the fizz helps balance the sugar and give it some lift..just loved this. Paired with chocolate dessert...

So light and fresh, very light purple color, bubbles are subtle. I will drink this all summer!

Sweet, bubbly, fruitalicious red is exactly the kind of uncomplicated wine I need today.

Brachetto grapes, juice is frozen until order is in, then fermented. Red fruit, minerality, light alcohol. Drink with thanksgiving leftovers or on Christmas morning.

(**) Soft, sweet, aromatic bubbly with raisins and black cherries. Med(-) body. Sweeter than Sangue di Giuda. Paired nicely with pork ribs and Italian bread dipped in olive oil.

"seriously...it smells like salted bubble bath", says @RNNikki81, "it's also a bit syrupy." -- totally unexpected wine. All we wanted to do was try something new. Great summer wine though. Must "just" try! $18 / 90pts Vinum206
