Festive cranberry in color with an aromatic bouquet with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose. A fresh raspberry taste, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a round and luscious finish. A unique and festive sparkling wine and a seductive aperitif. Pairs well with seafood, cheeses, spicy fare and chocolate. Serve chilled.
Just because a wine is made in the spirit of fun, that doesn’t mean it can’t also be great to drink! In fact, this lightly sweet “fun wine” recently copped a 91 point score from critic Robert Parker. Made from 100% Moscato d’Asti grapes gently tank fermented to preserve the super-fresh fruit, the 2011 Rinaldi Moscato d'Asti Bug Juice weighs in at a mere 6% alcohol. Notes of spring flowers, fresh cut pineapple, honeysuckle, and stone fruits float lightly and briskly over the palate. Great by itself, or with a hunk of your favorite Italian cheese.
