Press & Shelf Talkers
- Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media“Bright medium straw. Complex aromas of mirabelle, gooseberry, anise and orange blossom, plus a noteworthy herbal presence. Sweet and plush but with very obvious inner-palate herbal lift to the ripe orchard fruit and spice flavors. This tightened up in the mouth as a slightly green component emerged with aeration, making its firm underlying structure more apparent. Closes medium-long and bright.” Shelf Talker Full Review
- Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate“The Moscato grape from Northern Italy always offers musky and soapy aromas. In fact, the grape’s name comes from the Italian word mosca, or fly, because the grape’s sweet and sugary juice attracts all kinds of interested insects. The 2016 Moscato d’Asti Scrapona offers soft, foamy effervescence with creamy aromas of jasmine, peach blossom and candied almond. Pair this wine with pound cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream.” Shelf Talker Full Review
- Score: 86 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator“A zesty Moscato, with tangy acidity playing off the flavors of melon ball, candied orange peel and pear pâte de fruit. Balanced and creamy. Drink now. 3,333 cases made.” Shelf Talker Full Review
