Winemaker's Notes: You will lovethis soft and lovely afternoon red. These grapes came in too sweeeeeet! to make a dry wine. At 15.5% alcohol, you can't say we didn't try.

Ultimately, the yeast could not make any more headway and left this special wine that is reminiscent of your Grandma's grape jelly. People who don't enjoy the tannic bite or who like a pleasantly sweet finish have become instant fans of this wine.

Want a mini-vacation? Think of this wine as a piece of Italian candy in gelato sitting on the docks in Portofino. The Italian translation of Dolce Bottino is literally Sweet Booty. Wait 'till you get your lips on some! A bargain for a dessert wine at $23.
