Bella Bolle' Moscato D'Asti

I am definitely not big on drinking, but I do enjoy trying new drinks once in a while. Not too long ago, I was picking up a few groceries and found a whole shelf of this wine on sale (admittedly not the best sign when it comes to wines), and decided to buy a bottle. I am so decidedly not a wine connoisseur that I might even come off as ignorant here, but I was so impressed by the fruitiness and lightness of this Moscato that I had to share.

Bella Bolle’ Moscato D’Asti claims to have “vibrant flavors and aromas of stone fruit, tangerines, and honey,” and it definitely lives up to this. The honey is subtle, more a consistent sweetness than a specific honey flavor, but the tangerine/citrus flavor is surprising, refreshing, and delightful! Rather than a tangerine flavor though, I was more reminded of a sweetened grapefruit, one of my favorite fruits, and was really impressed by the vibrancy of the citrus. However, I’ve heard from others that they thought it tasted like a more sophisticated sparkling grape juice. Either way, what’s not to love?!

So, when you are preparing for holiday parties, in-laws, and/or are stressed out about all of the cooking you have yet to do, pick up a bottle of this. I’m always up for a break from dry reds!

NOTE: If you invite me to a dinner party, I will probably show up with a bottle of this. You might want to save it for later so you don’t have to share it. This wine is definitely that good.
