If you like Asti-style sparklers, it's time to think pink. This wine starts out as winemaker Spirito Ballatore's classic Gran Spumante; then he blends it with red wine to create great color and flavors. With a touch of sweetness, this bubbly is balanced by the tannic components in the red blend.

Wine EnthusiastDeeply colored for a rosé sparkling wine, and full bodied, with raspberry and cherry jam, vanilla wafer and yeasty, baked dough flavors. Slightly sweet, too. Champagne fans won't like it, but millions of ordinary consumers will.
