This is a great spring and summer sipper made with CK Mondavi Spritzed Rosé wine, a Blush Negroni Sbagliato!
What in the world is a Sbagliato? The meaning of sbagliato is basically “mistaken” or “incorrect” in Italian. A classic Negroni is equal parts gin, campari, and sweet vermouth. A Sbagliato is sweet vermouth, Campari and prosecco, or sparkling wine!
This Negroni Sbagliato is a great low abv cocktail, especially for the summer and warmer days.

Legend of the Spagliato Negroni
Bar Basso in Milan claims the invention of this twist on the Negroni. It was really an accidental cocktail, where the bartender subbed prosecco for gin. Inspite of the mistake, the cocktail was a hit! At the bar, they serve their sbagliato in a giant handblown goblet complete with an ice block the size of a car battery, or so they claim. This is pretty dubious, right? I mean, wouldn’t you notice the bubbles in the “gin”!
Given that a spritz uses soda to finish it off, I think the Sbagliato has far more in common with the fizzy drink such as Aperol spritz, as a sub for a Negroni, but maybe it’s a mashup between the two!
Classic Italian Cocktails
As I said before, a classic Negroni is made with equal parts Campari, red vermouth, and gin. A Negroni is usually an apertivo drink that is drunk before the meal to stimulate your appetite. This wine spritzer version is perfect for that, as well!
By subbing in the wine, you make this into an extremely refreshing pre-dinner cocktail. The Negroni Sbagliato is crisp from the wine, a little less bitter and boozy, and it provides the perfect excuse to open a great rose’!
Because this is a low abv drink, you can think of the Sbagliato as a Negroni you can have more than one of. Permission granted to you!
You can also drop in a quick citrus peel for garnish and you can keep the party going all day!
What Ingredients are Needed for the Sbagliato Negroni?
- CK Mondavi Spritzed Rosé Moscato
- Sweet Vermouth
- Tonic Water
Feel free to play with the proportions of the ingredients – such as if you like it on the bitter side, with more Campari than vermouth. Or, sweeter with more sweet vermouth. Play around with it. Experimentation is perfect in this case!
We did take a little license with this Sbagliato – as we added in more Spritzed Rosé Moscato than the original recipe called for (equal parts), but it’s more like a wine spritzer this way, especially with the added bit of tonic.
CK Mondavi Spritzed Rosé Moscato
Perfect for spring events, CK Mondavi’s Spritzed Rosé Moscato is a great choice for pairing by bringing a pop of pink. This spritzed, seasonal wine is available nationwide, and has a color changing label to show when the bottle is perfectly chilled.
That’s right, it’s printed with temperature sensitive ink, so the label transforms from a cream color at room temp to a bright pink when properly chilled, at approximately 55 degrees.
CK Mondavi’s winemaker, Randy Herron, made the Spritzed Rose Moscato to be crisp and fresh with notes of tropical fruit, juicy strawberry and peach. The result is refreshing and pairs really well with appetizers, spicy dishes, seafood and fruity desserts! It’s a blend of Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Rubired, Pinot Grigio and other white wines.
CK Mondavi is a family owned winery that has made hand crafted wine for four generations. They harvest grapes at the peak of ripeness from their 1850 acres of prime California vineyards to create wines to be enjoyed every day, whatever the occasion.
This is the first year we have been asked to be CK Mondavi Ambassadors, and we are so excited to share their fabulous products with you! We are even hoping we can make it to their winery this year, too! (Fingers crossed!)

Janice grew up on a farm near Sacramento, growing fruit trees. After college, she moved to St. Helena to get back to her agricultural roots, met Marc, and within two years, they fell in love and got married. Marc smiles, “And the rest, as they say, is history.”
