Wine Of The Week (34)

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!


  1. You’re making me thirsty! I would love some wine on this relaxing Sunday. By the way, was that REALLY his description or did you have to edit it? 😉 Teehee!

  2. I’m not a huge wine drinker but I remember my sister introduced me to a moscato I liked, never knew it was a type of grape!

  3. Yum! I just love Moscato wines – sweet and delish! : )

  4. I never know much about wines, but this does sound particularly nice.

    Just discovered your blog, would love it if you popped by mine sometime.
