Asti wine

Mabel and I tried a bottle of Asti from Trader Joe's last night. It came highly recommended by Priscilla.

We didn't realize that it was a sweet wine even though it said "Italian Sweet Sparkling Wine" right on the bottle. We planned on having it with dinner which was duck breast and green beans. It didn't go well with dinner, so we saved it for afterwards.

It's a nice dessert wine. It's moderately bubbly and tasted like a restrained moscato. Mabel made a strawberry, pound cake, and whipped cream concoction for dessert and the Asti happened to pair perfectly well.
