Villa Rose NV Moscato D’Asti (Italy)
Tonight we are sitting out with Erica’s parents’ friends before heading off for some Mexican food (which was delicious by the way). I pulled out my Schott Zwiesel glasses and a bottle of Moscato, which I had purchased this afternoon for just this occasion. Most people in the circle had never heard of Moscato and others had no idea that wine went into proper glassware – as usual I get chuckles when I pull out my own stemware. This pseudo-bubbly was just the right sweetness needed for end of the day heat here in Florida (68F), and the 5.5% alcohol was far from oppressively heavy. Ginger ale, peach and grapey smells and flavours. A good treat for those who tried it.
