Cavit Roscato Rosso Dolce

Lombardy, Italy
Made from 3 Italian grapes, this is a sweet, lightly effervescent wine… and it is red. Unlike most reds you serve it chilled. Sweet red wine is the fastest growing type of wine in North America. This is a lovely little lighter bodied glass of sweetness either to be enjoyed on its own or with some spicy food even ripe juicy strawberries.cspc 743540

Price: $14.99
