Benessere Muscat Frizzante 2007

Member Review by Nicole Ramsey:

Picked up a bottle of this when I was unable to get a bottle of one of my favorite wines, the Benessere Muscat Canelli Scintillare. I still like that one better, but this is a really excellent substitution for champagne. It is a very slightly sparkling muscat, instead of bubbles fizzing in your mouth, it makes it light and airy. It has dominant floral and bright fruit notes, with a little bit of citrus. Very enjoyable, will probably repurchase. I think this wine stands out as both a muscat and a sparkling wine for being pleasant, but not particularly sweet, not too fizzy, and an excellent value for price. 10.8% alcohol, bottle pours most comfortably for two, but could probably be stretched out to as much as six if you just want enough for a toast.
