Castello Del Poggio Delle Venezie NV Moscato (IGT), $9.99-$11.99, 89 points, opened with a puff of 'smoke' and displayed less effervescence than a frizzante wine, and with as light a brass color 'imaginable' without being water clear.
The aromas of cream soda and orange were excellent.
Light-plus body was sleek and soft exhibiting medium acidity and an expected reigned-in sweetness.
Flavors neatly reflected the aromas with a touch of rock-candy.
Finished long on the trailing palate, hints of citrus, and a nearly unnoticeable 7% alcohol.
A fine aperitif, but paired well with my warm pecan pie, maple-spice cake, and okay with baked fig squares.
