Thirsty Thursday: Magicale

On a recent trip to the Disneyland Resort in California, I decided to try a sparkling wine at the Wine Country Trattoria.  I admit, I am no wine connoisseur, so I totally picked one by its name.  I have about a 30/70 chance of that actually working out for me.  This time, however, it succeeded beautifully!  I was in Disney, so naturally I had to try something with a Disney-fied name.  Magicale!  You can’t get any more Disney-fied than that! 

Magicale is a sweet, yet complex sparkling wine in a deep red color.  Like I mentioned, I am no wine connoisseur; these are my own descriptions.  I don’t want any Asti Monferrato oenophiles rolling their eyes at me.  (By the way, Asti is the region in Italy where Magicale comes from, and an oenophile is just a fancy name for a wine nut)

The gentleman who was pouring asked if I had ever tried it before; apparently it has quite a loyal following.  He revealed to me the legend that this was the exact same potion Cleopatra used to seduce Julius Cesear, and is known throughout Italy as the wine of passion.  After one sip, I realized that this wine could ensnare anyone’s taste buds.  I am a firm believer in that Cleopatra story now! 

Not long after, on a trip to Walt Disney World, I noticed the wine was on the menu at Citricos, as well as several other resort bars.  I highly recommend you sample a glass the next time you find yourself in The World!  It isn’t cheap though, as it will run you about $12-$14 a glass.  Sweet as it is, it’s a wine to savor and not gulp.

On a side note, if you fall in love with this wine as I did, there really isn’t much that compares.  The Banfi Rosa Regale is the closest I’ve found, and is certainly more readily available, but it does not even come close in complexity in my opinion.  The Vendome Wine and Spirits does carry it from time to time online.  Luckily, my hubby was diligent and managed to snag me 3 bottles!

Xoxo, Ami

  8. Hi Everyone,
    I'm from United Kingdom London, City(GB). I met this spell caster called Dr. Ogudugu of greatogudugu@gmail.com online and so many other, but i decided to go with this particular spell caster and this is about 2 weeks ago.I needed the spell caster to reunite me and my lover because she started behaving strange and a day came she text me and told me she cannot continue with the relationship anymore, that she just want to be alone.But a close friend of hers shows the guy to me that she was now dating.So i contacted this spell caster because i was totally heart broken and i smoked and get drunk till i could not even notice if am standing or lying.This spell caster told me not to worry, he gave me hope that am to have her again just like old times, and i provided all the requirements, and in just 5 days, my ex lover called me crying over the phone asking for me to forgive her for her stupid act, and she swore with her mother grave to love me and never hurt me again.This was what the spell caster earlier told me and it came after he has done the spell and that same night, my lover came back to the house to me. I have never seen spell as powerful as this but now, am convinced that Dr. Ogudugu is the best ever, You can contact him through him email address: greatogudugu@gmail.com And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number:+2348139793075 Thanks Dr. Ogudugu Website: http://greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com/
