Name: Primo Amore Moscato
Variety: 100% Moscato Bianco
Seller’s Review: Straw-yellow with golden reflections and a delicate mousse. Fruity and very inviting, with intense scents of peaches and exotic fruit. Fresh and pleasantly sweet with a taste that reveals its varietal characteristic.
My Review: I absolutely adore this wine! I’ve had it before but I’m tasting it for this class because I thought it’d be interesting to analyze a wine I’m familiar with. Honestly, even with this wine, I noticed a lot more things than I ever have before. I think the seller is being overly poetic, the wine is basically clear, but it smells like apples and pears, which I had never really paid attention to before. When I tasted it, I got hints of apples and pears again, which is normally where I stopped, but there was something else I couldn’t quite pick out. After consulting with my wine wheel, it hit me! Lemon and honey! Weird, because I wouldn’t expect all of that to go well together, but the wine is amazing.
I didn’t eat any foods with this wine, which is the way I prefer it. It’s so good it doesn’t need anything to go with it.
