Stella, Moscato 2017, Sicily, Italy
Tasting Notes: While many moscatos you find on the market are one-dimensional, this one from Stella offers hints of welcome complexity that one doesn’t often encounter, especially for the price point.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of grapefruit, white rose blossom, pear drop and lychee with a hint of sauvignon-blancesque, fresh-cut grass.
On the palate the dry, medium-dry moscato delivers zesty flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
Tell your mama.
