Aromas of vanilla bean and candied almonds get it going, however, there isn’t a lot of fruit to the nose. The palate deals some tangerine as well as lemon-line, but also a bit of obvious sugar. On the tail end there’s a slight burnt almond note that comes across bitter, but for the most part it delivers what it should. In addition, the etched label is attractive…
The sweet sparkling Moscato style is from northern Italy, the bottle’s Etruscan theme is from central Italy and the fruit is sourced in Puglia, southern Italy. It’s a wine of mixed messages, but Candoni’s marketable Moscato d’Italia shows a simple sweet mouthfeel and bright aromas of jasmine and wild flower.
