The first thing that I noticed about this wine is that it is made in a Frizzante style. Frizzante means Semi-Sparkling. Yes, you read that right. It is a red wine with effervescence. After the initial shock of the tongue tickling you experience, more surprises come.
This wine is low alcohol and it is very sweet. I would almost describe it as a sparkling sangria of sorts. It has a ton of fruit and goes more towards a sparkling grape juice rather than wine. The bonus is that is does have alcohol!
This is the wine for the non-wine drinker. People who say I don't like wine will not say that when this is their glass on your patio!
Voulet Antichi Giochi Piemontesi Casorzo in a nutshell:
Description: Extremely easy to drink due to very low alcohol content. Surprising effervescence gives an added source of conversation. Tons of fruit consisting of mostly raspberry, elderberry and concord flavors.
Pairings: A perfect wine to accompany chocolate based desserts. Also, would be great with spicy BBQ on the grill during summer months for something different.
Price: Varies per website/market. Should be in the $11.99 to $17.99 range.
