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.
