This Moscato is the product of centuries of “spensieratezza” — our lighthearted way of life. An authentic Italian heritage, this delicate Moscato carries a sweet bouquet of musk, peach, honey and white flowers. It pairs perfectly with savory BBQ, spicy dishes, pasta, salads, guilt-free desserts, and a candid smile. Hello Sweet Life.
The non-vintage Castello del Poggio Moscato comes from the province of Pavia just to the east of Piedmont in Lombardy, Italy. The wine opens with a fresh and sweet aroma chock full of peach, honeysuckle and other floral notes. Tasting the light-bodied wine reveals lots more honey and peach wrapped up in a lovely, lively mouthfeel that balances the sweetness deftly. An excellent example of Moscato, this is a fresh and refreshing wine. It is especially nice that it is just 7% alcohol. It ends with crisp, lingering honey soaked peach notes and quite good length. This is a great pick at just $8!
