Mezzacorona Moscato 2008

Member Review by aldo311:

This brand is much drier and lacks a fruity taste relative to a typical Moscato. NOT sweet or fresh unlike what MrRiesling posted (it is sweeter than Riesling - I will give you that). Anyone who has had a good Moscato knows that they tend to be very sweet, fruity, and fizz almost like champagne. I could not drink it so I made a sauce for scallops with it. It is a good alternative if a recipe calls for a dry white wine and you want a stronger flavor as it is slightly sweet (but again, not as sweet as most Moscatos).

Responsible for overseeing Gruppo Mezzacorona, the Mezzacorona Societa Cooperativa Agricola was founded in 1904 as one of the first growers associations in Italy.  Currently occupying just under 6,500 acres at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, Gruppo Mezzacorona which produces all Mezzacorona products, combines both the traditional pergola system of growing with the more modern espalier system for enological operations.  While staying true to the natural balance of the grapes, Mezzacorona is equipped with the most modern enological equipment allowing them to produce upwards of 8 million gallons of wine annually. Wine production focuses on quality white production with special attention paid to their Pinot Grigios and Chardonnays, both grapes coming from the Valle dell’ Adige section of the vineyards.  Red production is centered on the Teroldego, followed closely by their Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, harvesting the grapes from the Piana Rotaliana and Lake Garda regions, respectively. Renowned for their consistent quality, Mezzacorona wines benefit from the unique landscape of the Trentino and Alto Adige regions of Italy.  For years Mezzacorona’s renowned winemakers have planted varietals in locations best suited for that varietal, being sure to takeg advantage of all the micro-climates the region has to offer.

Fresh and sweet. Almost like desert wine.
