Tuesday Tasting: Uvaggio Moscato

2009 Moscato 'secco'
$16 (Media Sample)

Aroma: Citrus and melon
Texture: Light to medium bodied
Taste: Melon, tropical fruits
Finish: Lively

When I think of Moscato, I picture a sweet, simple wine, made for drinking on the deck in the heat of summer as the kids run around the yard with their buddies. Uvaggio, the winemakers of interesting Italian varietals from California, completely shattered that conception with this drier version vinified from Lodi grapes. This is a great lively and acidic wine with just a hint of sweetness. Great drinking on its own and also pairs well with food.
