    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…
