Saracco Paolo "Moscato d'Asti" 2009
Wine Tasting Notes Most Moscato d'Astis essentially taste the same, some are just fruitier or sweeter than others. This slightly effervescent, sexy, seductive wine displays gorgeous tropical fruit and floral notes, very good acidity, which makes it taste more lively than many Moscatos, and a light-bodied finish. The wine is a thrill to drink, but it should be consumed as either an aperitif or with fruit desserts over the next six months.
External Reviews for Saracco Paolo "Moscato d'Asti"
Moscato d'Asti is one of the true wine delights of the world. The Moscatos of Piedmont are bold and refreshing and have equal appeal to wine novices and experts alike. Saracco's 100% Moscato is light, clean, crisp and wonderfully refreshing with fresh, fruit peach, lychee, pear and floral aromas and flavors with a very delicate effervescence. It has a clean, elegant finish exhibiting fresh, crisp acidity with no sensation of cloying sweetness. A real mouthful of fresh fruit.
Another terrific Moscato d'Asti, this 1999 offers a perfumed nose of apricots, peaches, and spring flowers. In the mouth, it is light-bodied with gentle effervescence, moderate sweetness, and gorgeous purity As indicated before, these wines rarely possess more than 6.5% alcohol. They are vivacious, beguiling sparkling wines to enjoy during their first 6-12 months of life.
Paolo makes terrific Moscato d'Asti, the delicately scented, frizzante (semi-sparkling) wine made from Moscato Bianco grapes. Moderately sweet with a faint hint of sage and mandarin.
The 2007 Moscato d'Asti offers an exciting array of lime peel, pears, green apples, flowers and minerals in a focused, incredibly pure style. The wine possesses gorgeous length and phenomenal balance. This is what top-flight Moscato is all about. Anticipated maturity: 2008.
Boasts frothy mousse, good persistency and a clearly defined mineral tenor backed by sweet green apple, honey, jasmine and a touch of clove. Sweet peach cream in the mouth makes this semisparkler an ideal match for baked desserts.
Fruitily fragrant apple nose lends style and grace to this sparkling moscato. Aromatic, sweet roses and lemon flavors dance on your tongue with an appealing tropical, brilliant finish. Enjoy all year round chilled to perfection.
Nach der Hälfte der Gärung durch Kühlung gestoppt, und dadurch nur 5,5% Alkohol und ein angenehmes Prickeln, wunderbar herausgearbeitetes Muskataroma, im Piemont trinkt man ihn nach dem Essen zu Nuss- und Mandelgebäck.
