La Spinetta 2022 Moscato d' Asti "Bricco Quaglia", Piedmont
After a half century enjoying wine, it still baffles me than anyone wouldn’t enjoy the pure joy of this world-class Moscato. Giorgio Rivetti is said to have created his dynasty from this wine, a low alcohol, frothy pleasure on so many levels. Try to pick out an aroma or flavor component—is it mandarine orange, lime, pear or all three? Impressive concentration is in the middle of it. Of course it is a sweet wine, but sweet in the most natural sense. Imagine a warm leisurely afternoon sipping this wine while nibbling at a slice of salami. World class pleasure.
