Risata Wines, a brand of Prestige Beverage Group, launched two fruit-forward, semi-sweet red wines from Italy: Scarlet and Raven. The new collection expands on Risata’s current lineup of Moscatos, Sparkling Rosé and Prosecco. Risata Scarlet and Raven are both Brachetto-based, semi-sweet red wines with frizzante-style soft bubbles and are best served slightly chilled, the company says. With 5.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV), Scarlet is ruby-red in color with garnet shades, and an aroma of strawberry, raspberry and cherry with hints of violet and rose, it adds. At 5 percent ABV, Raven has added violet shades, aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cherry and dark fruit jam, the company says. Both wines are available for $14.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
