Great desert wine!
Loads of bubbles but a pureness of Muscato that was refreshing...entirely.
Nothing complex, just a very enjoyable drink from a good producer. You could sense the hands of a good producer in this one. (it saved me from the horrible Gewurzt tonight).

The frizz is definitely going down but this is still a great refreshing wine! Floral, white peaches, off dry but nicely acidic to be very refreshing. Gulpable....
Nice start to a barbacue dinner

Sounds nice. What do you pay for a bottle like that? I'll be hosting an Italian tasting in July, and would like to find an inexpensive, universally appreciated wine to give out as a prize. Sounds like this might work, if it's not too expensive.

I'm not in the shop at the moment, so I can't give an exact retail price. However, we carry 3 to 4 Moscato d' Astis and they all run in the $12 to $17 range.

This one runs about $17 Duane. The 2007's are out and personally, I think that this producer does it the best. Very clean, super fresh, super focused....as a matter of fact, I went ot a friends house for dinner to night...this was served as a before dinner drink.

okay,...no frizzante left. Just a clear crisp sweet wine. Still nice this way but lacks the vibrancy when there is some fizz. Next bottle (my last) will be made into a white sangria...
