Lance Armstrong

Hey, Lance Armstrong, you just won your 7th Tour de France! What are you going to do next?

"I'm going to take my children on holiday in the south of France....go to the beach, DRINK WINE, eat and not worry about a thing."

Hey, Lance, don't forget to try some of those dry Rose's.

Wine Blog Wednesday #11 - Off Dry

Marco Negri, Moscato D'Asti DOGC 2004 ($16) -- Italy, bottled by Negri SS Costigliole D'Asti. 5.5% alcohol. Some beers have more kick than this effervescent aperitif. I am a little clueless on this one, but I am making a stab at what I think is "off dry", that is not dry or sweet, but a little sweet I guess. Keep the kids and women away from this one as they will quickly finish this bottle off in a matter of minutes if left unattended.

This stuff could be habit forming! It is not overly sweet, just slightly so. I can see myself enjoying a pasta lunch on the stone escarpment in Portofino by the blue-green Mediterranean while downing several glasses of this thirst quenching, refreshing wine. Waiter, check please, my yacht is double parked at the marina. Now I just need to work on that fashion look of my blazer thrown over my shoulders! Chow Bella!

Ooops! I knew I forgot to do something before I left town on vacation! (July 13th)
