Martini & Rossi

Martini & Rossi, wine

It may be a new year, but moscato bianco grapes are an old favorite that has pleased palates since the 13th century in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.

This sweet, lightly effervescent wine at 5 percent alcohol should not be confused with the more sparkling asti spumante. It’s also in complete contrast the big and robust iconic red wine barolo from the same region.

Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi started making wine in 1863. This wine was sourced from grapes from many family growers near the town of Asti.

Dripping with flavors of honey and orchard fruit, it’s a sweet way to slide into 2017.

Sherry: “Light-bodied and sweet with flavors of apple, pear and honey.” (2.75 stars out of 5)

Chris: “A floral bouquet with sweet honey, pear and apple.” (3 stars out of 5)

Available from $12 to $14

Coming next week: Carletto Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
