Ballatore Gran Spumante NV

Winemaker's Notes:

The winemaker, Spir Ballatore, styled this delightful sparkling wine in a manner similar to Spumantes from the Asti region of Italy, with a proprietary blend of specially selected California grapes. Tasting Notes: The delicate freshness of Ballatore makes it a most charming sparkling wine. Inviting aromas reminiscent of ripe peaches and apricots combine to form a delightfully complex bouquet. Well-balanced and rich in varietal character, this sparkling wine refreshes with melony flavors and a crisp, clean finish.

If you like your bubbly sweet, this is an excellent choice. The cleanliness and sleek, refreshing quality is impressive. So are the flavors of peaches and raspberries. Finishes with a honeyed scour of acidity. - S.H.

Fresh, spicy and appealing; a sweet wine, offering effusive lychee, pear and nutmeg flavors that linger through the sweet, spicy finish.

Sharp in bubbly acidity and slightly sweet, this sparkling wine has pleasant flavors of raspberries, strawberries and vanilla. It's a clean, refreshing sparkler.

Frankly sweet, and zesty in acidity, this is a nice, clean bubbly for those who like a bit of sugar in the finish. It has pleasant flavors of tangerine and vanilla, with a light, delicate mouthfeel.

A bit fierce in aggressive bubbles, but this sparkler is fine for everyday purposes, with its sweetened peach and vanilla flavors and brisk, clean acids.

Pale straw with a metallic cast. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Flowers, sweet tropical fruit. Mild floral hints reveal sweet juice fruit flavors that show some moscato character. Although sweet, this refrains from cloying. A party drink.
