This wine is from Asti in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. It's made from the red grape Malvasia Nera, part of the the large family of Malvasia grapes (the source of one type of the much loved Madeira). While most of the Malvasia family is white, this is indeed a red grape!
Pairing: Dark chocolate mousse with berries! Or with a cheese plate!
Bottom Line: Fun and bubbly! I dig it. And at about $12, a great value buy.
