Michele Chiarlo Nivole Moscato (half-bottle) 1999
from Piedmont, Italy
Moscato dAsti is one of the most sublime and delicate of all dessert wines, which should be consumed at its freshest and most youthful. Its very low level of alcohol makes it particularly light and soft on the palate, and especially gentle for consumption after dinner, when wines of greater alcoholic content have typically been consumed beforehand. The name ""Nivole,"" which means ""clouds"" in Piedmontese dialect, appropriately suggests the wines airy, elegant quality The fragrant, intensely fruity bouquet, offset by musky notes, leads to a refined sweetness supported by an excellent acid balance on the palate, with a suggestion of effervescence in the texture. The finish is clean and crisp, with a persistent flavor of grape and citrus characteristic of the variety.

We enjoyed the wine last night after a large dinner. It was less sweet that most other dessert wines. Yet it had wonderful notes of honey and raisins.
It was light and while I had forgotten it was sparking, it was a wonderful surprise and delight for my guests and I.
If you're looking for something less sweet or just something different in your next dessert wine, I highly recommend this.
