2014 Bava Moscato d'Asti $12.99
From the winery: "Bright straw yellow, with fine persistent bubbles; intensely aromatic nose, with fruity hints of apricot and linden blossom; tastes sweet, light, with good acidity and a long, fresh finish. The sweet Italian wine par excellence, it is traditionally served with sweet breads (brioche and panettone), cream and Chantilly-based sweets, and fruit desserts.

Vinous: "Crushed flowers, mint, pine, spices and crushed raspberries lift from the glass in the 2013 Anthos, Correggia's still, dry Brachetto. In this vintage, the Anthos is especially light-bodied and ethereal. I would drink it slightly chilled as an aperitif. - (AG)" (5/2015)
