Roscato wine

This nonvintage red blend comes from a large winery cooperative in Trentino from northern Italy.

It lives up to its description with an inky-dark pour that will stain your tongue purple. The dark color comes from long contact with the grape skins during fermentation. It’s a blend of mainly indigenous northern Italian grape varieties teroldego and lagrein with a little merlot.

Soft tannins and fruit forward, there is enough residual sugar to put this into the off-dry (which we would call semi-sweet) category and good selection for beginning red wine drinkers.
