Taste/Description: The muscat grape is grown in Piedmont Italy, an area known for robust, high tannin red wines and elegant white wines.

On the nose you get aromas of white flower and honey. On the palate, you get honey, peach, light citrus and light effervescent. I normally don’t drink Moscato because in my opinion, the wines are almost too sweet but after a few sips, I found this wine enjoyable. Is it sweet? Yes, but it’s supposed to be. Since I am not big on dessert, this wine was a perfect replacement for dessert after dinner.
