Just as woderfull as it was 30 years ago. My friend and I (in our younger days) used to buy this one full case a piece. Sometimes we would share and sometimes NOT. It was great remebering those days and great to have this for the first time in a long time. I shared my first bottle from this shipment with my friend and her husband for their 34th year anniversary. They were elated to have this treat. It is a sweet bubbly delious treat. Wine Chateau gave me excellent service and I will be ordering again. Thanks for being there and thanks for your excellent service. kh

Wine Maker Notes
The sparkling wine is created with the Asti Method. Grapes are crushed and the juice is stored at a low temperature until it is needed. When the wine is ready to be made, the grape must is warmed and fermentation takes place in pressurized tanks. Carbon dioxide is allowed to escape until the alcohol level reaches 6% and at this point, the Carbon dioxide is retained - which creates the bubbles. The fermentation continues until the alcohol has reached 7-7.5% alcohol by volume and the pressure is close to 5 atmospheres. The fermentation is stopped by chill filtration and the wine is bottled for immediate release.
Enjoy as an aperitif or with fruit-based desserts such as berry tarts, chocolate covered strawberries or key lime pie.
