2010 Sori Italy Moscato d'Asti
Gold Medal: Denver International Wine Competition. Effervescent and sweet; notes of Honeysuckle and white peach.
Lot 228 has a luscious floral nose with notes of Jasmine, Honeysuckle and white peach coming through on the palate. Beautiful and bright, this is the perfect apertif. With some well balanced residual sugar and notable spritz (frizzante), the finish is impeccably clean and refreshing. In fact, this perfectly balanced Moscato is quite a pleasure after encountering some of the dark, syrupy Moscatos that do damage to a good, crisp Moscato's reputation.
Style: Full, Bold
