After visits to Portugal and the Champagne and Bordeaux regions of France, today we stay closer to home — the Central Coast region of California — to share a sexy American wine with Italian flair…
The Top 10 Sexy Wines of All-Time
No. 7 — Martin & Weyrich Moscato Allegro
Since Italian men are the sexiest men on Earth (so we’ve been told), this list would not be complete without at least one pseudo-Italian wine.
The Martin & Weyrich winery is located in the Paso Robles growing area, and specializes in Italian-style wines.
And its Moscato Allegro may well be California’s most hedonistic Muscat Canelli-based wine.
Its aroma is fresh like a spring flower (think: orange blossom).
Its flavor is fruitful, spicy and sweet.
Its finish is crisp and clean.
Moscato Allegro also is an extremely versatile wine, equally enjoyable as an aperitif, a dinner companion, with dessert or as dessert — seductive in so many ways.
Even the packaging is sexy: Martin & Weyrich Allegro comes in Italy’s traditional “Renna Punto,” a long and sleek bottle reserved for the finest Moscato d’Asti.
The winery likes to say that the wine is “perfect with flowers.”
We cannot disagree.
In fact, gather together a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of Moscato Allegro and a date, and you have the makings of a vinous menage a trois.
