Michele Chiarlo Nivole Moscato (half-bottle) 2000
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.

This is a wonderful dessert wine. On special occasions I have sustituted this for champaign and it recived raving compliments. My only complaint- I wish the bottle was bigger.
A Customer - Washington State
This wine is clean, fruity, not overly sweet. The slight effervecense makes this a refreshing dessert or appertif wine. I would rate this a 92. It is a must for entertaining!
