Good stuff. I enjoy Muscato…. Think ill look for the Braida, and a nice price on it, too. QOTD: I havent had enough bubbly wines to make a good decision on that. Have had some nice champanges ( among them a Billecart-Salmon Rose), and some Muscati and Prosecco…. I do love me some root beer though, so Im going with Henry Weinhards root beer.
Bust out a 95 or hell why not a 100 points for the best muscato d’asti ever.
I’m gonna order some for my bubble lovin friends and if it’s half as good as you say. I’m giving it a 99.
As you say, preconcieved something or other should not prevent you from giving out 100 frickin points to the best one you’ve ever had. why can’t a weird wine get a bigger score? Is it only reserved for ugly burgundies????????????
I have same question like FineWineMike had. What’s your opinion about the Michele Chiarlo Moscato D’asti Nivole? Hoping to see your review of it
you should try the Il Conte d’Alba Moscato d’Asti or the Stella Rosa (by the same company). they are both dessert wines, but the stella rosa is a dessert red. Favorite alcoholic sparkling of mine is a Wilson’s Creek Almond Champagne. excellent sparkling for celebrations and sweet. favorite non-alcoholic choice is Canada Dry Ginger Ale.
QOTD: Majella Sparkling Shiraz is one of the best sparkling wines ive had (I try to look for QPRs!), or german lager. Non alocholic would be some high end lemonade/tonic, or maybe julmust (swedish christmas colaesque drink) as you only get it twice a year (also during easter as påskmust)
You guys are adorable. And it was pretty hilarious when I realized that the “Ma” you were referring to turned out to look a bit like Al Goldstein…
Have not had these wines… not a sparkling fan. QOTD-none http://www.winelx.com
Great episode! And fun to finally see Mott’s face! Made a note on my iPhone, will see if that Braida Moscato d’Asti can be bought here in Canada! “Peach pool” – I’ll never forget that! I wanted to watch this episode before I watch your later Moscato d’Asti episode…onto that one now!
