Another product of my visit with Jen yesterday was the Mezzacorona Moscato 2007, again from the Dolomiti in Italy. Normally the minute one hears the word "moscato" they are bombarding with images of sugary sweetness dripping from their teeth as the enamel slowly melts away, as if covered in sulphuric acid or something. However, Surprise! Surprise! Here's a stunning Moscato that is reminiscient more of an Austrian white than an Italian. (Not a coincidence Austria is merely on the opposite side of the Alps from here).

The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: The Mezzacorona Moscato 2007 is a delicious, lively white wine that gives you all of the fresh peach and nectarine gusto you come to expect in a Muscat, yet there is no real syrupy sweetness at the finish. What you get is lots of honeysuckle and apricot tones in the nose, scores of stone fruit flavors up front and in the middle, with a surprisingly balanced melding of mineral and acidity to give you a refreshingly, uncloying white wine that is bright, lively and clean. Coming very soon to our stores!
