Wine Tasting - Santa Moscato D'Asti 2011

"This is one of the disadvantages of wine; it makes a man mistake words for thoughts."
Hi!  May your day bring your efforts into success and your heart into peace.

While walking the isles of our local Costco warehouse club, Tiffany and I stumbled upon something special within the beer & wine floor space.  And, what was that you ask?  A most reasonably priced wine from my favorite wine region of the world ~ Piedmont, Italy.  Since Costco general carries nothing except the finest wine selections, we both knew it would be worth the price.

Chucky's Point Score:  90
Tiffany's Point Score:  92

Chucky's tasting notes

Chucky's Notes:  "An absolute & refreshing 'Wow!'  Once again my favorite wine appellation of the world has not let me down.  Delicious, refreshing and a perfect blend of citrus, pear, apple and sweetness."

Tiffany's tasting notes

Tiffany's Notes:  "Piedmont has once again outdone itself!  The bold red delicious apple bouquet delivers to an explosion of tree and tropical fruits on the palate.  I love this sweet fruit smooth Asti!  Will be going back to Costco for more!"

This Asti is a mildly sweet and elegant treat to the palate.  The beautiful sculptured glass bottle appropriately houses this wonderful nectar.

You must do yourself and delve out a measly $9 for what will certainly be a shocking bottle of casual wine!  Serve it to your guests or take it to a dinner party and you will certainly impress everyone who is lucky enough to partake its' crisp enjoyable taste.
