We have been looking for a good example of this style for a long time and we think we have it nailed with this one. Too often you will find sparkling moscato expressed as overly sweet, cloying and boring. This beauty however has a great acid backbone that lifts the fruit, tames the sweetness in the middle palate and delivers a long and deliciously sweet finish with no hint of cloying. Delightful as an aperatif, served ice cold.
Dessert wine. Golden tending to amber. Saffron, iodine note, candied apricot, honey and custard on the nose. Beautiful acid component. Mineral and toasted almond finish. Delicious. Malvasia 40%, Riesling 20%, Traminer 20%, Petit Manseng 20%.
TASTING NOTES – brilliant straw-yellow – full of tropical fruit aromas, especially pineapple and banana, just a hint of oak, with vanilla and butter rounding off this expressive nose – full-bodied and balanced on the palate, long lingering finish with echoes of ripe fruit.
Wine Advocate 92+. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Vial offers an immediate mineral note that pops bright from the bouquet and is followed by honey, pear and white peach. However, the beauty of the wine remains in the fact that you can so clearly recognize those dolomitic mineral nuances. Mountain herb and dried sage also make distant appearances. I highly recommend this beautiful wine. ML Sep 2019.
