Mr. Wonderful and I threw a little wine/dinner party last weekend.
The first wine we opened was Bartenura’s Moscato. You may remember the horrible experience I had with a moscato back in my single days. I would post a link to that post, but it was so long ago I cannot tell you were I posted it. Let me tell you… that moscato was terrible and I vowed to never drink any moscato ever again.
One of my dear friends loves moscato wines and since she and her husband were coming to our party I bought this moscato for her. Bartenura’s Moscato is from the Piedmont region of Italy and was over the $10 cap we usually put on wines (though it was still under $12 after tax). I love this wine. It is light, bubbly and tastes of fresh pears. This is a wine that I did not want to pair with anything. We casually drank this wine while talking before combining a different wine with our food.
This wine changes my opinion of moscato wine. It would be a lovely addition to a summer sangria or just relaxing outdoors on the patio.
Bartenura, I do plan on trying your other wines and I hope that they are just as amazing as this one.
