This odd little duck is a sweet sparkling red wine. It's got pleasant aromas of raspberries and would go very well with dark chocolate as an afer-dinner drink. Very festive colour.

Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dec 23, 2014: This is a wine that most people won't recognize and pass by, which is a shame. This sweet sparkling wine from Piemonte, Italy can make an outstanding food pairing. Cranberry in colour, with a nice froth and flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and a floral note made this a fantastic pairing with stilton cheesecake with strawberry, raspberry and blueberry in a pomegranate reduction. The flavors compliment the compote while the fizz lightens the dessert by cutting through the richness and readies the next bite. Worth a look for a holiday dessert course to wow the crowd.
Aromas of rosewater, strawberry and cherry blossoms. The palate is amazing - light and frothy, sweet and fun, flavourful and pretty. The floral component gives the whole experience some added flair. Sip, or enjoy with fresh fruit or pastries. If ever a wine should be on Facebook, this is it: one taste and we are certain that you will Friend, Like and Share.
