Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell' Amore Moscato SpumanteValentine’s Day is almost here and you know what that means? NO! Not THAT! Well, yes, probably THAT too, but I’m talkin’ ’bout wine…mmkay.

Recently, I sent all the editors home with a bottle of vino…with a catch: to put their palates to good use and bring me a wine review. After much swirling, swishing, debate and scrutiny, this “highly scientific” survey is finally up! Just in time to pour a glass for you and your valentine.

My personal favorite was the Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell’ Amore Moscato Spumante from Italy for $14 bucks! The bottle is ADORABLE (I’m such a sucker for pretty packaging) and it’s a seriously delicious sparkler–the perfect apĂ©ritif before a romantic dinner. (Jon Hamm and Michael BublĂ© not included.)
