  • Luccio Moscato d'Asti 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Still one of my favorites but the sweetness level remains at elevated level, which is not something I really like to drink on a steady basis. Apples are dominate, with orchard florals, honey and bubbles. Went great with turkey, stuffing mushrooms, stuffed mushrooms, several cheeses, green bean casserole, baked squash w/nuts and cranberry relish.... Read More

  • Mirassou Moscato 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon glaze shortbread cookie nose gives way to a slightly fizzy, honeysuckle and sugared lemon and tangerine palate with some crisp straw notes. Fresh and light for easy drinking and a perfect mealtime friend. Read More

    For you sweeter palette drinkers this is heaven. The winemaker says "Crisp and refreshing, semi sweet, with lingering pear, tangerine, nectar and melon flavors on the finish. Perfect with dessert or fresh fruit, or sipping poolside." Read More

  • Sequin Moscato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Meh - I've had better. Nice light bubbly moscato. Not as sweet as some, slight bitter grapefruit. I got it at half price and it was worth that. Read More

  • Mirassou Moscato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy melon, tangerine and sweet tea aromas on the nose are quite inviting. In the mouth this is light, fresh tasting and fairly mild, and carries notes of orange and sweet tea, with some light effervescence and a hint of grapefruit. Bordering on off-dry, this definitely will please those with a sweet tooth. Read More
