"Pale in color, Joyful offers reticent scents of pears and apples. It has a nice, creamy mouth feel and light orchard fruit flavors. Finishes on the dry side despite 14 g/L
RS. Pleasant by itself but would also be a good mixer. A blend of 85% Barbera, 10% Cortese, and 5% Moscato from Italy’s Piedmont region."
