Wine Of The Week (19)

I am officially ignoring the rain.  In fact, I am downright protesting it.  So much so, that I asked our sommelier David to treat us to another summery wine in this Wine of The Week.  Fortunately, this is one area where David never disappoints.  In fact, if last week’s wine was suited for a drink on the beach, then this one is great for the poolside.  Alright, I won’t hold you in suspense any longer!  We are talking about the Elio Perrone Bigaro Moscato Brachetto 2010.

David describes the wine “as sweet with a bit of a backbone,” so people who usually find Moscatos overly sweet will find this wine more pleasing to the palate.  This is probably due to it being blended with Brachetto, an Italian red grape varietal.  It does have some bubbles, which in sommelier speak is described as “lightly frizzante.”  All this adds up to a cool wine to drink.

(I couldn't find a great photo of the bottle, but this is the label.)
