Binny's Mailbag: Sweet Reds
Here is a question we are asked frequently at the Binny's Mailbag:
I like sweet wines. I've had had Sauternes, ice wine and moscato that I like a lot. Are there any sweet red wines you can suggest? Thanks - PSHi P, thanks for the question. We have a ton that you'll enjoy. Here are just a few. Marenco Pineto is from the Brachetto grape of Northern Italy. It shows sweet red berry fruit, and remains floral and balanced - not cloyingly sweet. The style is increasing in popularity and has earned its reputation as the "Red Moscato." For something similar but a little less expensive, give Serena a try. This Italian blend is a little lighter, fresher and very easy to drink. For a fuller bodied red, check out Adesso. It's one of our top sellers in the sweet red category. 100% Refosco from Emilia Romagna, just south of Venice, Italy. It has an inviting character of red berry, black raspberry and touch of spice. Food-friendly or great by itself. Of course, that's just the start. You'll find tons more sweet red wines at your favorite Binny's location. Stop by, check out what's on hand, and ask your local wine consultant about their favorite sweet reds, too.
