We lost the plot with this one… now we present you with a delightful even playful dessert wine or aperitif if you prefer!
Fragolino Rosso Frizzante from Bottega Bibano decants into the glass with bright cherry red and purple reflections. The bouquet is like no other: ripe, juicy strawberries, freshly made strawberry ice cream and hints of white chocolate.
Fragolino is a tribute to the Isabella vine. This resilient grape variety saved many winemakers after the phylloxera disaster. Nowadays Isabella is rarely used for wine production in Italy, but Bottega wanted to create a monument to it: Fragolino Rosso a wine-based drink (similar to spritzer or “tinto de verano” but better!) that perfectly captures the charm of the Fragolino of old.
We favor having it as a dessert all by itself. After spicy Mexican, Thai or Indian curries, Fragolino masterfully refreshes your palate.
