Moscato d'Asti is a unique wine where the beautiful aromas of the grapes are enhanced by a crisp, nice acidity, a light fizziness and the sweetness of the natural residual sugar. The low alcohol content makes it a very easy, pleasant wine perfect to finish a meal with dessert, or alone as a nice mid-day break.
"The 2007 Moscato d'Asti offers an exciting array of lime peel, pears, green apples, flowers and minerals in a focused, incredibly pure style.
The wine possesses gorgeous length and phenomenal balance. This is what top-flight Moscato is all about. Anticipated maturity: 2008."
I may not know tons about wine, but after opening this at a party, everyone loved it. They all had to write the name of it down so they could go buy some. All in all, that says a lot. It is slightly sweet, with a delicious refreshing taste that dances across the tongue. Very refreshing and left the palate with a clean fruity experience. I'm not a wine taster, just a casual "user". Enjoy this one.
Moscato d'Asti in one of the finest sparkling desert wines in the world. This particular wine is extremely sweet (only 6%, so lots of residual sugars) and has a nice bubbly touch. It is hard for me to justify the puchase of this bottle at $20 though. The flavor is delicious and extremely well balanced, but nothing to call home about. It has a nice complex lychee type scent and a crisp apple flavor. Hey, if you can afford this desert wine then definately give it a shot.
Sweet and just the right amount of sparkling. It is the closest I have found to the Muscat D'Or I had in Hungary. Simply wonderful.
