Not sure why this is labeled as a white blend as it’s 50% Pinot Noir but it is a white wine so maybe that is why. Fun mix of refined bubbles with some ruddy practicality underlying all. Aka the bubbs be plush and the flavors say home. — 10 days ago
Quite fun. Refreshing and fruit forward with candied grapefruit and raspberry that are not sweet though. Sprightly. Someone was dancing with limes nearby. A limey backdrop of freshness that makes this good with spicy or savory. I want to re-try with Taco Bell fries when they resurface, in the meantime my veg-fiend self is gobbling my usual gallons of raw cauliflower dipped in Sriracha. Y’all, my food/wine writer life is so glam n lit.
Or not. But the drinks are good and the veggies are your friend. — 14 days ago
This is my favorite moscato yet. Thank you Vietti for being a beautiful winemaker and also making this. If there were white peach jolly ranchers tossed into some grapefruit and Meyer lemon juice and then you dashed in some orange blossom and magically gave it velvet bubbles that’s this. It’s...delicious. You’d think at a mere 5% abv I’d have a cooler word than “delicious” but damn this is. — 3 days ago
Other vintages of this don’t have the most stellar reviews but I think this excels. Dear Chablis, please stay humble. It hit my nose with ever so much chalk. Then I took a sip and realized the chalk was just hiding all the lemon-honey-cough-drop-without-being-medicinal goodness in this bottle. It isn’t the most complex but rather just powerful and modest enough to keep me intrigued. Extra bonus it was not overly spendy. — 12 days ago
Whaaaaaaa?! This changed my mind and threw me for a loop for any aged sweet wine going forward. It was so damn fresh yet deep but light but heavy but...but...I do not even know but what a goddamn treat. We drank on the podcast and all agreed it may just be the most extraordinary thing yet. Honeysuckle green things but honey and honeysuckle and orange rind and roasted nut but it is all mellow af and good lord this wine. Never looking at Sauternes quite the same. It was perfect. Oh and then we tossed some cheese into the mix. Explosion of expectations and everything. — 22 days ago
