Lot 311
2011 Sori Moscato d'Asti (Italy)

Featured in the Wall Street Journal; Luscious and effervescent; notes of Honeysuckle and white peach.
$14
Lot 311 is bright and fresh with beautiful aromas of honeysuckle blossoms and white peach. Delicately sweet and lightly frizzante, this wine is playful and aromatic across the palate, making it a terrific aperitif or great just on its own. With some well-balanced residual sugar and its notable spritz, 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.

Please note: This wine needs to be stored upright.

Style: Full, Bold

Flavors: Honey, White Peach

Cam Confidential
After a few years of fruitless searching, we finally came up with a terrific Moscato producer last spring to regale us with the delicious and ridiculously popular Lot 228 Moscato (which sold out in a flash). Moscato is the earliest ripening varietal in Europe typically picked sometime mid to late-August, but this year, the grapes ripened quickly and were picked early in August and went into the bottle in October – a bit like Beaujolais Nouveau, but better. Lot 311 2011 Moscato d’Asti is the real deal and every bit as good as last year’s wine.
