    Snoothrank:

    My taste for red wine has been "acquired" and Adesso is really helping me bridge over to red. I usually drink this at room temperature, but I may try it chilled. I've served it at many dinner parties, and everyone seems to love it! Read More

  • Adesso Cagnina di Romagna 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is stupendous. I tried it recently with my family. We each gave an impression. It was compared to a wine my father made using Muscat Grapes for the Sweetness and the Concord Grapes for the Rich Bold Flavor. I live in the Wine Country in Temecula and it compares to Stella Rosa by Il de' Moscati. Read More
