2007 Moscato Allegro, wine review - The Wine Muse
Today I will be reviewing one of my all time favorite "dessert wines". I find that typically people either love or hate dessert wines. The haters typically cite them being way too sweet to pallet. Martin & Weyrich 2007 Moscato Allegro falls into the category of dessert wine, but definitely holds its own with its crisp pleasant taste. It is refreshing with a nice finish and there is a hint of sweetness, but it isn't overpowering or syrupy like many of its contenders. Reasonably priced, between 10 and 17 dollars for a 750ml bottle, it is a contender for most appealing dessert wine for the masses.
This wine has a nice light traditional Moscato d'Asti color. HEAVY pear and a little apple scent. NOTES: Orange blossoms, honeyed apricots, peaches, pears, citrus, pink grapefruit. This wine finishes with a semi-sparkling finish (fizzy light).
This wine is produced in the style of northern Italy’s muscat. A deliciously fresh and fruit wine from the Muscat Canelli grape. Muscato is California's premier Muscat Canelli based wine and is fermented in extreme cold temperature's creating a light, sweet wine perfect for appetizers, light desserts or by itself.
All in all a nice wine for a nice price, would appeal to a large variety of pallet's, a good into wine into the "dessert wine" category for the picky wine drinker.
