Beni di Batasiolo Bosc Dla Rei Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2009

Member Review by Ricercare:

I was first introduced to Moscato at the Mondavi winery in Napa. Our guide said Robert Mondavi had a glass each day and they included it in our tasting flight. I love big red cabs, but really enjoyed the moscato that day. The DOCG is one of our favorite moscatos - very flavorful. Nice desert wine, and just plain enjoyable.

Almost a crypt, where the ancient alchemy of transforming must into fine wines is celebrated. The sanctum sanctorum in which the grapes are selected by master vintners, who then heed the boiling of the fermentation in huge oak casks. The destination of the harvests of large estates, where the grapes were delivered once upon a time on carts drawn by horned oxen, whereas now they arrive for pressing only a short time after they have been picked. The winery as it was, with the old oak casks lined up imperiously along faintly-lit corridors. The winery as it is today, adjusted to the needs of an ever more demanding and selective market, in which quality is an unforgoable constant, a pre-requisite for a flawless, stable, homogeneous product. This means state-of-the-art equipment, and access to the most appropriate technologies. The new look, which stands alongside the old rather than in its place, is one of shiny steel, and electronically-controlled, automatic processes. Past and future living together in a dynamic, efficient present capable of taking on the toughest competition in the acquisition of new markets. Read less

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
