"Rinaldi Moscato d’Asti – Sweet, Smooth and Sensational
Dessert in a bottle! A Bulk Buy rating on a lovely, low-alcohol sweet wine, the Rinaldi Moscato d’Asti.
The 2016 Rinaldi Moscato d’Asti opens with sweet and succulent aromas of orange rind, honeysuckle, peach and a little baking spice. Tasting the wine reveals fresh, candied, honeyed and sweet citrus fruit flavors. A sweet, smooth, substantial and lively mouthfeel adds a level of elegance and a touch effervescence and good acidity helps take the edge off all the sweetness. This is dessert in a bottle! It ends with a crisp, sweet and long finish.
Interestingly, this wine used to be named “Bug Juice” (you can still see the bugs on the label). I’m assuming this was because of the sweetness, but this bottle offers a lot more than just some sugar! Plus the low alcohol makes it a refreshing treat almost anytime."
