First up here is my choice for either your dessert wine or an appetizer wine to start the evening right.
Rinaldi Red Dream is made from 100% Malvasia has about 7% alcohol
This sweet sparkling wine with soft bubbles and raspberry sweetness, I will call frothy not sparkling. This fruity Italian red wine delivers light, but fun twist to Christmas; it’s great for light fare/ appetizers. Wonderful change for the holiday season and the New Year.
Rinaldi ReDream Malvasia Frizzante around $20, I know someone in your family will love it.
