Day 141-Moscato d'Asti 2008 by Umberto Fiore for $7.99 at Costco
We bought this wine because it was the most reasonable Moscato d'Asti that we have ever found in a store. Generally speaking, I do not like Moscato d'Asti because I find them too sweet. This wine tastes like your typical Moscato d'Asti very sweet with just a touch of fruit flavors. I don't find this one to have as many distinct fruit flavors so I would think that the quality is somewhat compromised by the taste, however this wine is still very good for a Moscato d' Asti and at this price it would be a staple for my better half. I would give this wine out at Christmas due to reasonable price and woulb probably be a total hit for the non-wine drinkers.
