Gabbiano Moscato 2010 DOC

100% white Moscato grapes from Piemonte are gently pressed within 4 hours of harvest and vinified in stainless steel for 5 days. Fermentation is arrested at 7% alcohol, and after primary fermentation the wine goes through micro-filtration and then to bottle.

Straw colors, and nice effervescence. The nose? It's as if you just walked into a bakery, then there's vanilla and fresh fruit. Flavors of sweet ripe golden apple, pear and even some orange. The finish is long and delicious.
