Moscato d'Asti Oddero 2010
Moscato Bianco (white Muscat) is a grape variety with ancient origins, appreciated even by the ancient Romans. The grape ripens in mid-September, and the clusters have round berries with a golden color, shading to a warm amber on the parts exposed to the sun. The grape is distinguished by its unmistakable and delightful aroma, even when eaten as a table grape, and this aroma is the strength and character of the wine, which is delicately sweet and effervescent.

Fresh and crisp with gentle orchard fruit tones on the nose framed by hints of powdered sugar, lime leaf, and an herbal top notes, this explodes on the palate with wonderfully aromatic sweet Meyer lemon toned fruit that has great sweet/tart energy right through the long, sugar lengthened, Finish. It's not the greatest wine in the world, but it is incredibly delicious! 90pts

External Reviews for Moscato d'Asti Oddero
To be great, a Moscato needs two things: balance and minerality. The sweet, floral Muscat grape requires complementary acidity, and minerality gives the wine its complexity. Oddero’s Moscato has both, and it is delightful.
The success of a Moscato relies on its balance and minerality. Acidity is required to compliment the sweet, floral flavors of the Muscat grape. There must be minerality to take the wine to a heightened level of complexity. Oddero accomplished both and the result is delightful.
