MOSCATO White Wine





To many wine drinkers, Moscato means sweet white wine, and that it most often is. This white wine does have less sweet and even dry representatives, but I tend to think its new found popularity is for the sweet easy drinking white wines.
Without going into a lot of technical where, when, and how of the varietal (see Wikipedia) I'll list what I have found and reviewed in New Hampshire.
