  • 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

  • Bartenura Moscato 2013

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Candoni Moscato

    Snoothrank:

    Effervescent mouthfeel is extremely fruity with notes of peach and apricot, honey and oranges. In the mouth this is delicate and honeyed with lots of ripe red apples, pear and floral notes of orange blossom and a slight touch of tart lemon on the finish. Read More

  • Martin & Weyrich Moscato Allegro 2006: A sweet sparkling wine with delicious undertones of apricot and honey. I loved the way the tantalising bubbles played on my tastebuds. Can be enjoyed by itself or with a fruit tart or even a creamy risotto, enjoy!
