VinoUS Media Review
Bright golden straw-yellow. Perfumed aromas of white peach, orange blossom, lime cordial, sage and jasmine. Boasts excellent energy and grip to the flavors of fresh pomaceous orchard fruit and sweet spices. Finishes very long and bright, with strong hints of fresh citrus fruit and vanilla cream. A very successful 2017 Moscato d'Asti in what was a hot year, and a benchmark example of what Paolo Saracco can achieve with this variety. For my money, this estate is the DRC of Moscato d'Asti. (Ian D'Agata)
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.
