The official stuff
Gnista Red is NOT de-alcoholised red wine. Instead, it is crafted using similar techniques to those of their alcohol-free spirits (gastronomy and tradition meet food tech). Every ingredient is there for a reason, and the purpose is to deliver a taste sensation made up of tannins, body, earth, tartness, spice and just the perfect (read not too much) sweetness. Gnista Red Italian style has Italian has no other wish than to offer tannins, cherries, liquorice and a woody spiciness. Doesn’t taste like a wine, but will replace a medium-bodied red one. We drink Italian with BBQ, tomato dishes and red meats. Or on its own!
