About This Wine

Year in and year out, one of the most popular wines among Vinesse club members is Stella Rosa.

That's why we secure a supply each time a new bottling is released. Stella Rosa is grown near the beautiful village of Santo Stefano Belbo in the Piedmont region of Italy. There, it's crafted into a bright and refreshing sparkling wine.

Many people are surprised to learn that sparkling wine is made in Italy, and they're downright shocked when they hear about a red sparkler from Italy. The northern Piedmont is the sparkling wine capital of Italy, its cool climate being conducive to growing the grape varieties that make good sparklers.

This is the home of Stella Rosa, a red sparkler meant to be served well chilled and enjoyed with fresh fruit, cheese or brunch fare. Not as "bubbly" as French Champagne, its effervescence is no less enjoyable, and the wine is simply delightful to drink. No wonder our members love it so much.

    Not a big sparkling wine fan so this was a poor introduction to the club (meaning, so far, I haven't been impressed with the club). The wine is very light with not a whole lot of body or flavor; more like a wine cooler.

    This was sparkling with strong cherry flavor, but entirely too sweet for my taste [like a cross between soda and cough syrup]; if you like sweet wines you'd rate it higher.

    Usually I am not a "sweet wine" fan, but this one really grabbed me. I served it with a nice Stilton/apricot cheese and it was absolutly wonderful!

    A wonderful sweet red wine. I was so pleased with the purchase of the duo, I immediately reordered another half case. Very nice sweet red wine, but not over powering. Would go well with steak or fish. After all, wine should be about what you enjoy, and you will love this wine.

    Stella Rossa is my favorite wine. I find it light and refreshing.

    This wine is so good. My area does not carry it so I had to do a mail order for a case. Shared 1 bottle, now I got a order for 2 more cases. To bad it isn't around my area. The shipping is a bummer. But SO WORTH it....

    I have been trying all types of wine for years. My cousin sent me a bottle of this wine. And I no longer looking for a great wine. This is the only wine I now drink, and give as a gift. Only problem, I can not get it around my area. So I do a mail order. Even after the shipping,, it is so worth it. I / we are hooked line and sinker on this wonderful wine.
