Michele Chiarlo Nivole Moscato D'Asti 2006 Wine Review

Tasting notes:

Sweet citrus nose with dense bubbles and fizz upon pouring

Smooth and dense on the palate

More sweet citrus on the finish with a beam of honey and cream

Here's the best Moscato D'Asti I know of. With a fizzy, bubbly pour that gives way to sweet fruit and honey, you'll polish this off in a hurry. Typically thought of as a dessert wine because of the sweetness, we often sip this wine with appetizers such as onion tart. It has sweetness, but it's light and lively too.

Look for this in the dessert wine section and expect to pay $12-15 for a 375 mL bottle.
Raise a glass!

I paid $60 for this bottle in the huntervalley australia - gorgeous muscato the best i've had ever, waitress said the bottle was from France or Italy or something, so i'm trying to track it down!
