I love the Wine Of The Week posts. Because, not only is David introducing you to new wines, he is introducing them to me as well! This wine is particularly interesting as it is made from the Muscat grape- widely considered one of the oldest varietals. It can be made into a table wine or into a slightly sweeter treat.
We are taking a closer look at the Saracco Moscato d’Asti 2010 bottle. It is described by sommelier David as, “an all purpose wine. It can be served by itself, before a meal or with dessert. It is lightly frizzante [that means lightly sparkling] and a little sweet. It has some acid to back up the sweetness. Overall it is a good juice.” It averages about $16 a bottle—meaning this juice isn’t limited to special occasions!
