BATASIOLO MOSCATO D'ASTI 2007
The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: The Batasiolo Moscato d'Asti Bosc Dla Rei 2007 is a wonderfully light, effervescent white wine, with lively white flower, white peach and nectarine, and hints of mineral and spice that lift up the palate without bearing down with unnecessary sweetness. While there is the presence of sweet stone fruit, the balancing acidity that follows gives you an easy-drinking white wine with just the right amount of frizzante that makes this perfect for starting, accompanying, or finishing a meal, particularly a simple Spring picnic. The low alcohol (only 5.5%) makes this very light and easy to drink on the progressively hotter days without weighing you down. Give it a go!
