"Made from 100% Moscato d'Asti, and incredibly packaged with a fabulous label, the 2011 Rinaldi Moscato d’Asti 'Bug Juice' is pure spring flowers, fresh pineapple, honeysuckle, peach and apricot, which all soar from the glass. With about 5% alcohol, it is a gloriously fresh Moscato fruit-bomb. Drink it over the next year. The good news is that there are about 5,000 cases of it imported to the United States, and importer Fran Kysela says that his favorite accompaniment to this wine is a big wedge of Gorgonzola cheese.
Above all, wine is meant to bring people together, encourage conversation and be fun. If there's a quintessential 'fun wine,' it is certainly the sparkling, low-alcohol Moscatos made in Northern Italy. I jokingly refer to these as breakfast wines, but they are remarkably fresh, lively wines that rarely exceed 5 to 6% alcohol. Their aromatics are stunning, and no one does a better job making these wines than Rinaldi. There are three cuvees to contemplate."

Friends love it!I bought this wine after hearing another lady rave about it in a store. She purchased 3 bottles. I myself purchased 2. My roommates and I had been searching for the perfect sweet wine to turn our other friends onto it and boy did this work. So flavorful and its not too sweet. beautiful taste. Definitely one of my top favorites!
