  • Torres Esmeralda 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I was first attracted by its delicate floral aroma, but was enthralled by its subtle scents of citrus and lily. Taste was excellent and was balanced well. Well suited to seafood dishes but excels on a picnic with soft cheeses salad and good company. Read More

  • Beviamo Moscato d'Asti NV

    Snoothrank:

    This is the one wine that my husband and I can both agree on! In fact, we took a case of this on our honeymoon. I love the sweetness, the effervessence and the notes of peach and flowers. I also love the cheap price and the low alcohol content, because my husband and I usually polish off two bottles! Read More

  • Botani Moscatel Seco 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This was amazing!!!

Great body too!!! Read More
