From the bottle:
"This sparkling wine is fresh and crisp with a citrus bouquet. After a delicate pressing of the grapes, the must is immediately fermented with the Charmat method in large pressure-sealed stainless steal vats, creating a bright golden straw yellow colored Moscato. It is crisp on the plate with flavors reminiscent of peaches and honey that are enhanced by the intense yet fine bubbles.Sparkling wine is perfect this time of year -- and I'm not just talking about New Year's Eve. Thanks to all those bubbles, sparkling wine makes for some great pairing opportunities with all kinds of rich and salty appetizers popular at holiday parties. And let's face it, nothing signifies a celebration better than some bubbly. Today we have a sparkler made using one of the more popular grapes right now, Moscato.
Serve with desserts especially fresh fruits and pastries or enjoy when paired with spicier dishes. Perfect for parties, summer sipping and Sunday brunches.
The Mionetto Dolce Moscato begins with a very pleasant aroma of peach, citrus, honeysuckle and some other perfumed floral notes. The wine tastes deliciously sweet with the perfect amount of bubbles, which evidently is a lot harder to accomplish than it seems as much of the sparkling wine I taste just goes overboard with the effervescence. The primary flavors are peach and citrus like the nose, but in the mouth they are drenched in honey. It ends crisp and clean with good length. At a price point of only $10, this wine offers tons of value.
