When spring weather suddenly feels like the middle of summer, we know it’s time to lather up the sunscreen and chill the Moscato wine.
There’s nothing better and more relaxing than a chilled (57-60 degrees), low alcohol (5 percent), semi-sparkling, semi-sweet Moscato to lighten up the day or weekend.
According to the wine education site, Wine Folly, the Muscat grape may be one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world. It’s enjoying a trendy renaissance and often suggested to pair with not only desserts but tasty spicy and savory foods.
Moscato is known for its sweet flavors of peach, orange blossom and nectarine. It satisfies chilled on its town, over ice or as the base for a brunch mimosa cocktail. Moscato and its Dolce Rosso red sibling are easy-to-drink, refreshing and never fussy.
