Day 218-Bricco Riella Moscato d'Asti 2008 from Vintages in Arlington Heights for $12.99
This wine was opened on New Years Eve with our friends who don't really drink wine, but like Moscato d'Asti. My better half and my friends loved the wine, I found it way too sweet. It smells of peach and some floral. I find this wine to be a sweeter Moscato d'Asti with more of a golden color versus the pale yellow you generally find with Moscato d'Asti. This bottle was polished off on New Years Eve and would be bought in the future if the better half desired, but generally if he wants a Moscato d' Asti he would prefer to go with a Sorocco and the price is slightly less for Sorocco.
