Vignaioli di S. Stefano (Ceretto)

Moscato d'Asti 2020

Had this at Bern’s Steak House in dessert room. Pale lemon color with aromas of ripe stone and tropical fruits and floral notes wrapped in a frizzante. On the palate flavors of peach, apricot and mango with notes of white floral. Good balance with lively yet refrained acidity, medium+ finish ending with sweet ripe fruit character. — 25 days ago

Rusel

Moscato d'Asti

Both bottles had a bit of seepage around the cork. Opened with a ‘pop’. Fruity aroma and effervescent and almost a sparkling wine with small bubbles. Quite sweet yet crisp on the palate. I assume it was still fermenting in the bottle but it was delicious nonetheless. Glad I checked the bottles early and noticed the seepage or these likely would have gone bad. — 2 months ago

Santo Stefano Belbo

Bertolotto Brut Sparkling Blend 2009

Served blind and I enjoyed the expression on other people's faces. Truly, it's a hidden gem. Intense and rewarding. Baked apples, sunflower oil, toast and amber. Well balanced, it has good (e.g. high) acidity and long persistent and flavourful aftertaste. Again, it's not complex yet delicious and well made. Good choice for those who enjoy Champagne.

Tasted as part of Mixed Bag Vol. 1.

Oddero

Nizza Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2019

A little Nebbiolo-like, some tar with the acids. Savory and jammy, stewed cherries, touch of graphite, touch alcohol-forward. Great with Spiritus pizza. From Main Street Wine and Gourmet, Orleans. 06/25/22 — 12 days ago

Bricco dell'Uccellone Barbera d'Asti 2018

Rich and complex, highly concentrated, dense berries, mint, vanilla and licorice. Liberal use of wood added smoothness and a more western feel. This is outstanding. — 18 days ago
