Day 205-Dezzani Malvasia $8.99 at Costco

This is a new wine at Costco because if we had seen it previously we would have bought it previously. Malvasia is a sweet red wine out of Italy that is around a 5% alcohol content with a little fizz to give it that carbonated pop feel. This wine is very sweet with flavors of cherry and strawberry. Needless to say, my better half finished this in one sitting. Malvasia, in general, is a very good choice for new or non-wine drinkers because it is sweet and fruity and does taste like a sparkling fruit juice without alcohol. I find this wine to be the red version of the Moscato di'Asti and would pair with similar desserts, and as an apertif.

  1. What state did you buy this in? I called up the Costco in Nashua, NH and they didn't have it. Also, it wasn't on the Costco website. Thanks.

    2. I originally got hooked in Guam and we would buy it by the case. They only shipped it us quarterly and we had a wine group and would hoard it. Now in the states its hard to find. Its the only wine that I absolutely love..

  11. I work for the sole US importer for Dezzani wines. Do not have these wines in every state yet, but if you have any questions pertaining to where you can purchase this wine at, please do not hesitate to shoot me a message. If we do not have a distributor/retail/restaurant customer for your state, I will try my best to help you find the best option for obtaining these wines.

    Enjoy responsibly!
