Benessere Muscat St. Helena 2007
"Frizzante" means sparkling in Italian. Our semi-sparkling Muscat wine is pleasantly light-bodied and slightly effervescent, combining bright fruit, crisp citrus and floral notes. It is perfect for sipping on a warm afternoon and should e served well-chilled and enjoyed while young and fresh. This extremely versatile wine can be opened before, during or after any delicious meal. Try it with a light spicy appetizer, Dungeness crab cakes, Asian dishes or for dessert, try dipping panettone sweet bread in it, or pair with fruit mousse, panna cotta or zabalione. 2007 Began early due to the dry weather and light crop. Without the cool spring and summer, harvest would have begun even earlier. Uncharacteristically for Napa Valley, the rain stopped after mid-March. A heat spike around Labor Day foretold that the vintage would follow rapidly. However, after this brief heat wave, the balance of the fall was unseasonably cool and harvest was extended through the end of October. This extension of hang-time allowed for full flavor development in our red varietals and leisurely picking and fermentation regimes.
Benessere” is the Italian word for well being and prosperity. This is the feeling we try to embody at Benessere Winery. We are a small family owned, high end producer of Italian varietals, located in the north end of Napa Valley on the valley floor where the soil is well suited for growing excellent wine. We have expanded our selection of varietals to include Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Muscat di Canelli. We also produce an outstanding blend called Phenomenon.
