Banfi Florus Moscadello 500 2009
Golden yellow, clear and transparent, very consistent at sight. Honey and fruity aromas, warm at taste, slightly acid. This muscat wine was made with grapes withered on the plant and later spending at least one year in barrique barrels. Very nice dessert wine, though very sweet.Add winemaker's notes

I love this wine. I have given it to several friends who not wine drinkers. But after tasting this wine they fell in love.
External Reviews for Banfi Florus Moscadello 500
This sweet, rich wine is reminiscent of a very good Sauternes. Full-bodied, with pineapple, pear and honey character. Delicious. Drink now.
This vintage of Florus shows enormous purity and elegance and the various floral, fruit and almond aromas show seamless integration. The wine is thick, creamy and dense on the palate, but a zesty touch of acidity and chopped mint keeps it from ever feeling sticky or heavy.
Here's a beautifully gold-colored late harvest dessert wine born in the same territory that produces celebrated Brunello di Montalcino. Castello Banfi's expression is thick and luscious with a long fade flavored by apricot, honey and delicately toasted almond. Drink this wine alone after dinner in lieu of dessert.
