2010 Moscato Allegro

The 2010 Moscato Allegro is a Muscat Canelli based wine with a slight hint of golden straw color and incredibly floral and fruity aromas.  Right out of the bottle you can tell that this wine is bright and cheery and will offer you a warm weather summer sipper that will please any white wine lover's palate.  The floral aromas combine with orange zest, peaches and apricots and are joined by soft ripe melon on the palate.  While this wine could be served with a favorite light dessert or a veggie pizza, I think you'll enjoy it most by itself sipping with friends.

About Moscato Allegro:
The word 'Allegro' means cheerful in Italian, and that's what you get with this white wine.  It is made in the style of Northern Italy's Muscat, and is even packaged with a similar style bottle.  This wine was cold fermented in stainless steel, helping to preserve the bright fruit and floral tones of the varietal.
