Last Friday night, when I was out and about spring breaking it in New York City, I went to a small get together at a friend of a friend's house. I was feeling a little tired from too much partying the night before, so I opted to drink only wine. After a glass or two I was feeling better and rolled up my sleeves (not really, I was wearing a spaghetti strap top) to help Mike, the man of the house, prepare dessert. He let me pick out a bottle of dessert wine from his extensive collection and I chose this Moscato for two reasons:
(1) according to Mike it was the least sweet of all of his dessert wines (my sister doesn't like sweet dessert wines so I wanted her to be happy) and (2) the pretty sunset like label appealed to my romantic side. It's made with an ancient grape called moscato bianco that dates back to the Italian 17th century. The wine was incredibly light on the palate which forced us to open several bottles. A pale straw color (perfect for Easter) adds to this wine's sublime delicateness and smooth elegance. It has a fragrant fruity bouquet with a fresh, clean finish. We all enjoyed this wine: 92 Sugar Points.
