Taste/Description: I picked this wine up at @totalwineandmore because as most know, the Mondavi family makes great wine. I saw the word “Rose” and got excited but then saw the word “Moscato” and was like “meh” as I am not a big fan of Moscato due to the ones I’ve tried are sweeter than I’d like. Since this is a limited edition, I decided to take the risk and try it and wasn’t disappointed.
It’s a nice wine with lovely fruit aromas and fruit notes of tropical fruit, strawberry and apricot. Drinks nicely. You can pair this with spicy food, seafood or fruit-based dessert. You can also enjoy this alone.
