    From Marsovin Winery (Malta) made from local, Maltese, grapes.
    Quite round and pleasant. Good to meat or by itself.

    Maybe I can learn someting on this thread...

    I like a nice wine, mostly fruity but not to sweet... My wife likes the "OVER THE TOP" sweet wines...

    We have several vinyards in Iowa and I have tried a few, some good... SOME bad...
    Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated...

    The first time I tasted it was in the restaurant Huset on the Norwegian Island of Svalbard back in 1999.
    A few years later I was visiting Barcelona, and I asked the waitress what local wine she would recommend
    to go with a good steak. It has been amongst my favorites since then.

    Torres – Sangre de Toro. Soft, full bodied and not to many tannins.
