What a surprise.
I unscrewed this wine and it started to fizz.
I had no idea – it was a bubbly wine.
It is a Frizzante wine – which is a wine that has less carbonation, about half to a third, than that of a Champagne or sparkling wine. It has more carbonation than a Portuguese Vinho Verde though.
This is something new…
The initial taste reminded me of a semi stale bottle of ginger ale. The bubbles are there but not quite as strong. The sweetness was/is overpowering. This is a sweet wine. But much like a semi-stale bottle of ginger ale has something going for it.
There is flavour. It is quite a fruity wine which just enhances or exacerbates the sweetness – this depends on your outlook and tolerance of sweet wines.
