I normally don’t include sweet wines in my reviews, mainly because really good dessert wines are, by the nature of the beast, incredibly expensive. But when Greg and Mike returned from a recent buying trip to Italy and announced that one of our new direct import producers made some of the finest, freshest Moscatos that we have ever offered, I couldn’t resist. The 2009 La Corte “Preludio” Moscato d’Asti is a classic,
with a bright, perfumed nose and fresh, clean white peach and honeydew melon flavors enhanced by natural effervescence and lovely freshness. This incredible Gem is our house dessert or afternoon quaffer for the
month, according to Eby. 5% ABV.
