"Northern Italy provides a spectacular backdrop for Roscato, a violet-hued red with aromatic notes of cherry, blackberry and red raspberry. A touch of sweetness and bright acidity underlies the appeal of this charming wine. "~ Winery Notes

"Roscato Rosso Dolce is a blush wine produced in the Moscato d'Asti style, with residual sugars giving it an off-dry finish. Instead of the Moscato (Muscat Blanc) grape, it is produced with the red Italian Trentino-Alto Adige grapes Teroldego, Lagrein, and Croatina. This sparkling 'blush' wine has been popularized at Olive Garden restaurants, but is also available from EmpireWine.com."

We locked eyes...I was walking around the liquor store one day and I thought that i felt a tugging at my shirt, I thought it was maybe my girl or the homeless guy that followed me into the liquor store but it was wasn't. It was Roscato. I grabbed the last bottle on the shelf and pretended to read the label like I was actually into that type of shit. I hit the checkout counter and went home and cracked this bottle of new wine that I've never seen before. I must admit I was beaten into submission by the end of the bottle . I struggled to compare it to any wine I've ever tasted, i think of it as a better Mamertino.

Very Good WineI and my wife are like most of the others. We do not drink much at all. of any kind of alcohol. We have tried wine a few times but just not like that burning feeling you get or that alcohol taste. But someone told us about this wine, we had a change to taste it and we liked it. It was very good, did not give that burning or alcohol taste. We know can go out and order this wine when we are with friends, before we would just order tea or coke or some thing like that. We can and will have this when we have friends over for dinner or some thing. This truly is a very good wine nice and cold, sweet and very pleasing.

The perfect wineMy wife and I discovered this wine at the local Olive Garden and it's been our absolute favorite wine since. If you enjoy sweet reds, also try Jam Jar sold here at Empire, it's pretty awesome too but no bubbles.

Perfect and Delicous!I am very picky about wine and I generally prefer sweeter wines. I picked up a bottle of this at World Market and it was the best bottle of wine I've ever had! It was on sale for $12 (normally $15) and it is by far my new favorite! I am going back for more!

simply amazingI'm a huge fan of sweet red wines, but I do have a limit of how sweet it can be. This one is one of my favorites. It has a nice balance. It's not so sweet that it's sickening. If you enjoy the Roscato Ross Dolce try Nissly's Country Cherry!

Best RoscatoI am not a fan of red wines, however, this one is perfect. It's not to dry or tart. It has a crisp, sweet and refreshing taste.

OMG!!! Can't believe my tastebuds!All I can say is, "There is a God!" This wine is just perfect for those who are not a big fan of red wine (red wine is too bitter and upsets my stomach), but this wine has just the right blend of sweet and bitter and it is so very smooth. Now my meals are balanced. I used to just use white wine with all my meals (although taboo), but now I can use red with meats and whites with fish and pasta! I am balanced and will always have a supply of it for special occassion ... or just because! Try it. You won't go back to mediocre red wine again!

I couldn't believe what I put in my mouth...It was an experience I will never forget. The first hint of taste delighted my tongue, though tart it still had a sweetness that served my desire for more. Half way in, I knew that this was something that I was going to want over and over. I took my time finishing, not wanting to it to end, but knowing that the final drip on my lips would be as good as the first. I certainly will be back for more... and more.

Tasty wine if you're a classless heathen, like me!It literally is fizzy. It is like wine soda. It is sweet and fizzy and weak and I only felt the barest twinges of shame when i put a couple ice cubes in it.this is wine for the person who doesn't like wine.This is wine for never ever feeling an alcohol buzz.This wine WILL give you a hangover if you have more than a couple glasses as it is so sweet. I share this wine with everyone I know because, despite how all of this sounds, it is really delicious. It is refreshing and tasty and goes so well with food or cigars or on its own. This is not wine for a snob, aficionado or even a "wine lover."I buy it by the case.

O-M-G!!!So I have never been much of a wine drinker. Ever since I started dating my husband, we had been trying to find a wine I could drink without cringing! On our honeymoon, we went to Olive Garden in Orlando, FL. Our waitress asked about wine and we told her we liked a sweet homemade wine (we are from Bama). She then brought out the Roscato and we fell in love with it. We go to take the bottle back to our room. This wine is sweet and to me almost tastes like a hint of bubble gum. It's not too sweet, not too bitter. It is absolutely amazing!

Taste so goodI was never into red wine because the always taste bitter hard and basically horrid. My favorite wine is white Zinfendale or any sweet white wine but my first taste of roscato I am ready to retire white and stick to roscato. It taste smooth sweet a little fizzy and at the end u have the red wine taste. I searched high and low for it around my neighborhood even in wine stores in manhattan no one have a clue what I'm asking for. What a shame ...

I like a red wine?I have always been a sweet white wine drinker! Swore I'd never find a red that I liked. Well..... "never say never"! This red wine is sweet but not too sweet and has slight carbonation that makes it just plain old FABULOUS!!!!!

Tha411I am gonna give you the scoop on this. I am someone who went to a wine and cheese tasting maybe 10 years ago or more. It was my first time (and last). Being a novice I just picked up a glass of red wine and sipped it. OMG the horror! That stuff tasted like funky gym socks ewwwww! That did it for me I swore off wine altogether. My father later told me I must have gotten hold of a dry red wine. I didn't care I was done. I kid you not it was April 22nd, I was on a date and I trusted the person I was with and he got me to try this. I took a small sip and was like, ok no funky socks. I took a larger sip and actually liked it! I actually wanted to drink it. I had two glasses with dinner. I had to have a bottle. So after work today I went to an Olive Garden (since they told me it was only sold there) and bought a bottle. Sipping right now as I type. Glad I found this site. Now I can obtain it at a more reasonable price. May take longer to get it but I am willing to accept that for the better deal.
