The inviting apricot preserves, honey, butter and roasted almond aromas of this semi-sparkler pull you right in. It’s on the sweet side, with stone-fruit flavors kept alive by the decent acidity. The palate bubbles and tingles and maintains its balance. Fine as an apéritif or with dessert.
Kosher comes to Piedmont in this crisp, brisk, acidic red. It’s got a barnyard element at first, but it blows off leaving behind a lean, svelte body and pleasant cherry flavors. Proves that Kosher is not synonymous with sweet and syrupy. Best Buy.
Clean and encouraging even if it lacks that true Prosecco nose of lime and slate. Here you get apple and vanilla aromas before fresh apple, pear and cinnamon flavors. Easygoing and perfectly good. Even a touch rich and creamy.
From Italy’s workhorse white, a lean, tart, everyday wine suitable for a wide variety of purposes due to its clean, tingly acidity. Aromas and flavors are of minerals and herbs, just veering into lemon juice, and it’s utterly dry. If ever a wine cried out for food, it’s this one. Kosher, too.
Pale in color, this light wine makes up in flavor for its thin feel. The tart cherry and wild berry fruit is expansive, and the flavors are supported by bright, but not sharp acidity. It’s soft and easy, a very likeable house red.
Bright and fresh, though sweet and spicy. A wonderful apéritif or dessert wine—low in alcohol (7%), but high in flavor, with hints of ginger, peach, apricot, pear and vanilla notes. Kosher.
Lime and gardenia are dominant on the nose, with ample powdered sugar as well. Runs toward ripe nectarine and cantaloupe on the palate, with a sweet finish of dried mango. Shows pure Moscato flavors with only a hint of sugary artificiality.
Refreshing, and zesty, this is a good afternoon sipper or predinner drink. It’s light, dry and crisp, with tangy lemon-grapefruit aromas and flavors that may be too sharp for some, but we like the kick.
