Borgo Maragliano La Caliera Moscato D'Asti 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Pale golden color and nice, big bubbles
Very full nose of pear, melon, and honey
Soft and luxurious on the palate
My wife and I have become big fans of Moscato D'Asti. We often eat in numerous small courses, and Moscato can takes its place at either the beginning or the end of the meal with appetizers or dessert. Moscato D'Asti is generally light, sweet, and bubbly- a terrific combination. It's low in alcohol content, typically 5 to 6%. And more and more, I think it's versatile beyond just dessert.
This Moscato is one of the best I've had. It has such a full bouquet and is very smooth on the palate, making it seem extra rich. I paid $12 at Table & Vine in Northhampton, MA, which is one of the best wine stores in the country if you're in the area. Raise a glass!
