Dolceoro Moscato D’Asti n.v. (PB)

From Italy, the Moscatos are just plain wine guzzling refreshment at their lazy enjoyable best. This one emanate wonderful bouquet of ripe peaches and bounding in fruit aromas. On the palate it is lively with a hint of fizz and a sweetness which is a bit too much without sufficient acid to hold it up. But that said, the flavor of this wine is like biting into a fresh bouquet of flowers with a huge floral scent and floral flavors which just keep on going. To overcome the sweetness–although many will not see this a problem to overcome but a delight to revel in, it is best all by itself with a good chill on it.

I don’t remember what I paid for it but it was around $10 and it is worth the plain old summer fun this wine holds. Don’t worry so much about specific names for this wine; just pick up whatever Moscato you can find and chill it well and give it a whirl; I don’t think you’ll be dissappointed.

Raise a chilled glass and enjoy!
