48h Wine Tasting event is an event to celebrate 48h Pizza and Gnocchi 1st year anniversary. There were various white wine, red wine, sparkling wine and more suitable for a grand celebrations. I have been a fan of 48h since the first time I visited them when they first open.

My favourites were; Sourgal moscato d'asti, 2015. It came from north-western of Italy. when i smelled it, it has peach, lychee and sweetness smell directly in the nose. this is a perfect glass of bubbly which has a clear,  bright and nice colour. it is softly sparkling and gentle sweet in the palate with domination of peach and hint of lychee fruit. the sweetness of the fruits and low level of alcohol make this wine great in the afternoon, it is compliment with dessert cake either with cheese. 

My second favourite's was the Bellovedere La Valentina, 2012. It has fruity and rich smell. The red colour is so deep and it has a little bit of brown colour. It has heavy taste compared to others and it is very aromatic. It would taste even better if you eat it with steak. The aftertaste is pretty long. I still could taste the wine after a while.

My third was the Livon, Sauvignon Blanc, 2015. The smell is lovely, it smells fruity and sweet and the taste it's a bit intense when we first sip it. We also could taste the alcohol straight away. The more we have it, the more we could taste the melon and short aftertaste and it gives you dry palate at the end.

Later on the afternoon they served their squid ink gnocchi on a cheese wheel, this was a phenomenal presentations and currently in trend right now. The taste of their gnocchi as consistent as ever, soft and tasty. Love it.

It was fun and a chill wine tasting event, the host was super friendly which created an adorable atmosphere, and they also put a simple table decoration. while we did the wine tasting the owner provided us a finger food such as pizza, salami stick and cheese for the compliment of the wine. however at the beginning of the event, we were confused about the wine tasting procedure because the staff didn't offer any assistance.
